Summer 2005 Guide


Summer 2005 Guide


By Todd Inoue

Now with the chili finger scandal solved, San Jose can breath a huge sigh of relief and get back to the business of having fun. The summer concert season offers multiple opportunities to rock out, chill out and zone out. If any major theme can be gleaned from the bookings this summer, it's that everything old is new again. Bryan Adams and Def Leppard at Municipal Stadium. Judas Priest and Queensryche at Shoreline. ZZ Top at Montalvo. Billy Idol and the Pixies at the Civic. Hey, even Musical Youth is back. If we want it to be the '80s so bad, let's go all the way and roll back gas prices, too.

Anger Management III
HP Pavilion, July 19

What began as a way to bridge rock and rap subcultures has bowed to rap's dominance, as this lineup is now just a big excuse to wave white towels, wear wife-beaters and scream into a microphone. Tour headliner Eminem has held American youth in his grasp for the past five years and shows no signs of lessening his grip. 50 Cent is rap's current "it" guy, with his own sneaker and Glaceau VitaminWater brands. Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys schooled the world on crunk and what "skeet" is. D-12 and G-Unit, Em and 50's posses, respectively, have found airplay where similar second banana republics haven't. Obie Trice and Stat Quo round out the lineup.

Jackie Greene
Mountain Winery, June 23-24 (opening for Jewel)
Jazz on the Plazz, July 27

It's only a matter of time before Jackie Greene jumps from the opening slots and community bandstands to come into his own. He does a hearty singer/songwriter thing that echoes Bob Dylan—voice, guitar and harmonica recorded in mono. But his youthful élan has others whispering John Mayer and Jack Johnson. He's sold 50,000 records independently and signed to Verve/Forecast and local Sactown label Dig. For those who like to forecast futures, Greene's stock is rising fast. See him for free in Los Gatos before you have to pay good money next year.

Billy Idol
San Jose Civic Auditorium, July 8

An untold story of a past America Festival was that Billy Idol was this close to playing San Jose's annual blowout but in the end wanted too much money and pulled out (the hoards were eventually fed Smash Mouth). Too bad, because Billy would have rocked the Meadow with a snarl and upturned lip. He is the genuine article and has the ability to charm even the most jaded audiences—see Bridge School Benefit 2001. He's got an enviable discography that ages gracefully ("White Wedding," "Dancing With Myself," "Eyes Without a Face," "Rebel Yell") and only Billy Idol and Tom Jones can successfully play caricatures of themselves without embarrassing their fans. He plays San Jose after doing a few dates with the Warped Tour. Right!

Miller Music in The Other Park
St. James Park, June 9, 16, 23, 30

Music in the Other Park is the annual warm-up to Music in the Park, but now it seems like the main course. The event at St. James Park revs up with Goldfinger—the punk-pop band featuring Electric Love Hog leader and rabid PETA activist John Feldman. The vastly underrated Tubes with Fee Waybill plow through their repertoire of quirky rock ("Talk to Ya Later," "White Punks on Dope," "She's a Beauty"). El Chicano on the 23rd set the bar for Latin rock. And for the biggest surprise: a set by "Pass the Dutchie" where-are-they-now band Musical Youth and "Gangsta Bitch" rapper Apache Indian. It's a mix: overt references to ganja/dope smoking, Latin rock, and a kosher ska punk vegan in the shade of Superior Court? It won't be boring.

Pink Martini
Montalvo Garden Theatre, Sept. 7

Like many groups that are "big in Japan," Pink Martini passed the domestic flights and hit the international terminal. When they touched down, an audience with arms open was waiting holding their CDs. After intense touring and some lucky breaks, the cocktail pop combo from Portland went platinum in France, where they were nominated for Song of the Year ("Je Ne Veux Pas Travailler" based on a French poem) and Best New Artist. Their fluency in multiple styles (Cuban, Spanish, Brazilian, French, Greek, Japanese, Italian, Latin and Opera) tastes sweet like a Cosmopolitan and is equally gorgeous, playful and decadent.

Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings
Monterey Jazz Festival, Sept. 17

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings is a surprising find. Though the Augusta, Ga. singer spent most of her career in obscurity, the funk label Desco unearthed some Jones gems—"The Landlord" and "Switchblade"—in 1999 and the gospel spread. The rerelease made funk fans shudder in ecstasy and propelled her notoriety to a whole new generation. She's since recorded two albums: Naturally and Dap-Dippin' With Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings. One gets the sense of a rare recording unearthed from a secret vault. It's just the vintage technique that fools the ear, which uncannily replicate the '70s funk she's known for. When Jones' version of Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done For Me Lately" comes on, you can't help but giggle.

Hall & Oates
Mountain Winery, June 28

Ego Trip rarely gets it wrong, but on the issue of who deserves a ghetto pass, Hall & Oates or Phil Collins—come on, this should be a no-brainer. Collins may have worked with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Earth Wind & Fire's Philip Bailey and employed EWF's horn section, but H&O worked with David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks and have soul for days. Party DJs spin "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" and "Say It Ain't So" without irony, and "Out of Touch" drove B-boys crazy. Collins' declining stock can be summed up in two words: Tarzan soundtrack. Collins stacks chips from Disney, but Hall & Oates stack hits like pancakes: "Sara Smile," "Rich Girl," "Private Eyes," "Kiss on My List," "Maneater," "Family Man," "Method of Modern Love," etc. It's time to recognize Hall & Oates for what they are: damn good blue-eyed pop soul men. Hate if you want, but put on their records and dare not to sing along. Impossible.

Def Leppard/Bryan Adams
San Jose Municipal Stadium, June 3

In their '80s prime, these two could easily have filled Spartan Stadium— kitty-cornered from the June 3 venue at Municipal Stadium. But, alas, time marches on, waistbands expand and groupies put down the bong and pick up minivan keys. Like their fans, Def Leppard aren't revisiting the bacchanalian days of yore; it's all about nostalgic, one-armed drumming pop metal fun. Maybe they could tweak their songs to reflect the changing technology and bodily needs: "Digital Photograph," "Bringing on the Heartburn" and eventual set closer, "Pour Some Splenda on Me." Bryan Adams is also along for the ride. I still hold a grudge against the guy—the wimpy "The Best Is Yet to Come" was my 1984 senior prom theme; I wanted Saga's "On the Loose," damn it! This is an odd tour—a English band and a Canadian rocker touring American minor-league ballparks. But whatever, it'll blow doors on whatever's popping off at Santana Row.

The Bad Plus, Soulive, Jason Moran
San Jose Jazz Festival, Aug. 11-14

The San Jose Jazz Festival gets a huge shot of cool this year. The Bad Plus is a rock band masquerading as a jazz trio. Their reimaginings of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Blondie's "Heart of Glass," and Aphex Twin's "Flim" caused tails to wag, but it is the trio's toxic mixture of personality and performance that really defines it. Soulive is one of the coolest soul/groove/jazz bands. Jason Moran is one of the most exciting cats coming from the New York art jazz scene. It's a nice change from the contemporary snooze-jazz that tends to proliferate at the festival every year.

Green Day
SBC Park, Sept. 24

I saw Green Day at the Oakland Coliseum. It seemed so cavernous, and Dookie seemed like such a fluke. But America was crazy for Green Day, so much that even KMEL had to play them! But respect due, they pulled off a decent show though the Hi-Fives looked a little ridiculous. Now the East Bay punk-rock heroes and creators of 2004's lauded American Idiot are back in the surreal life. They graduate to the next step up: SBC park. Good for them. What a scene: the open air, bridge in the view, punks doing backflips into McCovey Cove—priceless. Jimmy Eat World opens.

Sounds of the Underground
Shoreline Amphitheatre, July 23

I guess Shoreline didn't feel safe turning the keys to its huge amphitheater over to the metal underground, but the parking lot and concourse is open season. This ambitious tour comprises new-school metal and its punk, screamo, hardcore offshoots. It's like the next generation Ozzfest and Warped Tour. The overwhelming majority of bands don't have airplay, so it's a logical decision for the tour to play the parking lot, but with the Bay Area such a metal stronghold, demand for a second Sounds of the Underground could very well make it play the amphitheater next year. Bands include Lamb of God, Clutch, Opeth, Poison the Well, From Autumn to Ashes, Unearth, Chimaira and a special appearance by GWAR.

Festival of Culture
The California Theatre, San Jose, June 9-12

The Performing Arts Series returns under a new name: the Festival of Cultures, sponsored by the city, the Arts Council and the San Jose Jazz Society. The four-day blowout features a preview of this summer's jazz festival with the Dahveed Behroozi Trio and Claudia Villela Ensembles (June 9); performances by the Firebirth Youth Chinese Orchestra, Kawailehua Hula Ohana, Abhinaya Dance Company and Kaisahan of San Jose (June 11); a night called "Dance Underground," spotlighting the Visual Rhythm Dance Company with Nu Origin, Jason Bayani, B-Syde and Jacqueline Herrara (June 11); and a concert with Zochipilli called "Rhythm Is the Root" (June 12).

Summer Classical
Cabrillo Music Festival, Aug. 1-14, Santa Cruz
Carmel Bach Festival, July 16-Aug. 6, Carmel
[email protected], July 27-Aug. 12, Menlo Park

Three major festivals cover a wide chronological span of classical music. The venerable Carmel Bach Festival concentrates on Bach and his Baroque contemporaries, with a few forays into sympathetic modern composers. This year's edition of newcomer [email protected] focuses in depth on all things Beethoven. The Cabrillo Music Festival in Santa Cruz is devoted, as always, to cutting-edge contemporary classic, with performances by the Kronos Quartet, Marc Ribot and Dutch violinist Marijn Simons.
