“Revenge of the Underground Jazz Composer”…or…Who the Hell is Bob Zieff?

A few years ago, an article was written for Dickinson’s Sirena Journal that gives a detailed look at WDCV’s resident Jazz DJ, Bob Zieff.  Did you know he is a famous jazz composer who has composed for jazz greats like Chet Baker?  You will recognize his soft, paced voice when listening to his show, Jazz Pathways, Sundays from 12-2pm.  The following is only an excerpt from the article but the entire thing can be read here.

The Avett Brothers at Innsbrook Snagajob Pavilion 7/20/2012

Almost a week ago now, I had the chance to see ever-energetic and delightful Avett Brothers perform in concert. I had yet to see them live, and after hearing wonderful things and crying over the online ticket purchase only briefly, I was able to see them in all their bearded glory.

Despite the kind of monotonous and nap inducing opener Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Avett Brothers came on with “Will You Return” and it was like a bomb went off in the pavilion (in a good way). Everyone was dancing, even the dads in their lawn chairs with beer sloshing everywhere. It was a hot and humid night, but halfway through their set it started drizzling slightly, and it was practically a scene from Singing in the Rain.

The set list in its entirety is below:

1) Will You Return
2) Traveling Song (slow)
3) Down With The Shine
4) Love Like the Movies
5) January Wedding
6) Salina
7) At the Beach
8) Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise
9) Live & Die
10) Laundry Room
11) Sally’s Lover
12) Ballad
13) Closer Walk
14) The Fall
15) Colorshow
16) Go to Sleep
17) Kick Drum Heart
18) Slight Figure Of Speech
————-
19) Please Pardon Yourself (slow)
20) Paranoia
21) And it Spread
22) Talk on Indolence

This band is amazing because whenever they play their songs live, they always seem to change some of the lyrics. After stalking the forums on the band’s website after the show, I even found some live recordings so all of you avid fans can watch for yourself. Included is the recording of their new song “Live and Die” set to be released on their new album which comes out in September.

Will You Return

Down with the Shine

Live and Die

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

Please Pardon Yourself

The Almost-Acoustic Showcase of Musical Talent!

THIS SATURDAY, November 12th, WDCV is crazy-excited to present…

The Almost-Acoustic Showcase of Musical Talent

What is it, you ask? How would you feel about an all-night, 100% free concert featuring five, count ’em, FIVE kick-ass bands? Because, that, my friends, is exactly what it is.

You’ll hear from Wild Horse and Video 54, two bands comprising current Dickinsonians and resident Carlislians.

You’ll hear from Trunks and Tales, a one-man acoustic troubadour from Harrisburg.

You’ll hear from Scott Pine and the Conifers, indie goodness from Bethlehem, PA

And you’ll hear from the ever-popular Ton Taun, the official partially-bearded band of WDCV.

And it’s all for free and free for all THIS SATURDAY.

Doors open at 7 pm  at The Depot, the show kicks off at 8 pm. There’ll be great music, cool people, light refreshments, WDCV merch, and an awesome atmosphere. Free and open to anyone, Dickinson students and non-students alike, so bring your mom! Bring everyone, because it’s going to be a damned good time.

 

Here’s how it’s gonna go down:

7 pm: Depot doors open

8 pm: Video 54

8:45: Scott Pine and the Conifers

9:30: Wild Horse

10:30: Trunks and Tales

11:00: Ton Taun

 

You can pick up some WDCV swag, merch from the artists, plus water and lemonade. But the show itself is totally free.

The Depot is located on the Dickinson College campus right next to the Kline Athletic Center, on Cherry Street in between High and Louther Streets.

It doesn’t get any better, and it doesn’t get any cheaper, so we hope to see you all there! Until then, rock and roll and don’t lose your cred!

 

With much love,

All your favorite folks here at WDCV
