The Great Escape - Music & More

Maybe it's 2020-2021's effect of making one extra nostalgic for live music and the festival spirit, but the intervening decade has done nothing to dull the luster of Dead Meadow's' exemplary Live at Roadburn 2011. The renowned Dutch festival that year featured the likes of Zoroaster, Quest for Fire, Naam, Acid King and The Atomic Bitchwax... on the first day. L.A. by way of D.C. three-piece Dead Meadow played the last day, what was then called the Afterburner, and their slot could not have been more appropriate. Sandwiched between Coffins and evening headliners Black Mountain on the Main Stage, they offered a mellow-heavy hour that was utterly consuming. People in the back sat down. Not out of fatigue, though it has been a long weekend by then, but just to let the warmth of Jason Simon's buzzing guitar wash over them. Joined by Steve Kille on bass and Mark Laughlin on drums, Simon's urfuzz and unfailingly drifting vocals filled that space with a laid back vibe and groove that Live at Roadburn 2011 presents in all it's Sasquatch-inclusive righteousness. Mixed and mastered by Marcel van de Vondervoort.
