VIDEO: "Down By the River" - Neil Young + Promise Of The Real, New Braunfels, TX, 2016.04.26



A slow burn "Down By the River" coming in at 20 minutes Plus.

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real on tour opening night at WhiteWater Amphitheater in New Braunfels, TX 2016.04.26.

enjoy!

From concert reviews by Old Neg:
It was the perfect show! Hell, Willie even dropped by for a few songs. Are There Any More Real Cowboys!? There's still at least one and Willie in his 80's has still got it! Best Neil show in quite some time (think decades). Out On The Weekend!! Right into Unknown Legend. Neil's going stronger than ever and this band smokes! Walk On, Words and Down By The River played right in a row, smack in front of the Guadalupe river with its back drop of huge trees behind the stage was surreal. There was only one Monsanto song even and it was Real! Real good that is. Monsanto Years has such a good groove and they were into it. Crowd was full and jacked up from the start. Can Neil really be 70? Seems impossible. And how do you close the perfect show?! Revolution Blues!! Holy shit. What a night

EARTH features the live recordings, along with added musical overdubs, as well as "sounds of the earth, such as city sounds like car horns, sounds of insects, and animal sounds from bears, birds, crickets, bees, horses, cows - creating a very strange, yet beautiful atmosphere."

"Ninety-eight uninterrupted minutes long, EARTH flows as a collection of 13 songs from throughout my life, songs I have written about living here on our planet together," says Young. "Our animal kingdom is well represented in the audience as well, and the animals, insects, birds, and mammals actually take over the performances of the songs at times."



On Friday, May 6th, in Los Angeles between 7:00pm - 9:00pm, The Natural History Museum Los Angeles County will present "An Evening With Neil Young", as part of their "First Fridays" event series. "First Fridays" is a monthly event at the Natural History Museum. For this event, Young will present the first public playback of his upcoming release, EARTH in its entirety in Pono high definition fidelity audio. Young will deliver the opening portion of the program with his insights and explanation of the making of EARTH, and its contents. This will be the first-ever public album preview by Young in his career and the first event of its kind for NHM.

For tickets and further details, go to: "First Fridays".
