Field of Dreams: A First Look at "Harvest the Hope" Cornfield Concert Venue - KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA

A Field of Dreams... build it and they will come.

KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA: News, Weather and Sports


From Farmer will host two music icons for benefit concert in northeas - KTIV News 4 Sioux City IA: News, Weather and Sports:
NELIGH, NE (KTIV/US92) -

Just over a month from now, music legends Willie Nelson and Neil Young will come to northeast Nebraska to help aid the fight against the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline Project.

Neligh farmer Art Tanderup has not been shy when it comes to statements against the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Last year he created the "#No KXL" crop art on his 160 acre farm, and now his farmstead will host music legends Neil Young and Willie Nelson for a music festival next month for the group Bold Nebraska.

Art Tanderup, Neligh farmer said, “Needless to say it is very exciting. I never dreamed anything like this would ever happen. Every morning when I get up I pinch myself and say is this for real or did I just have a dream?”

News of the once in a lifetime concert has spread quickly through the town of Neligh. Within minutes both hotels in town are sold out that weekend, and have stopped taking calls. Neligh's Economic Development Director says the sold out rooms give you an idea of the impact this concert is already having in town.

Greg Ptacek, Neligh Economic Development Director said, “We are trying to capitalize on maybe having some organizations do fundraiser's to catch some breakfast crowd before they get out to the farm ground.”

Ptacek says he is working on getting extra camping spaces secure for the concert as well as getting supplies need out to Tanderup's farm. Proceeds from the concert will go to Bold Nebraska and the fight against the Keystone XL Oil Pipeline. Bold Nebraska Executive Director hopes the impact makes its way to Washington DC.

Jane Kleeb, Bold Nebraska said “I really do hope that the concert, Harvest the Hope, first and foremost sends a message to President Obama that we are still fighting this pipeline very strongly in Nebraska.”

Harvest the Hope will be held Saturday September 27 from 1-5pm. To learn more about concert, visit the website boldnebraska.org.

Neil Young & Willie Nelson: "Harvest the Hope Concert", Sept. 27 in Neligh, NE



WHAT: "Harvest the Hope Concert" featuring Neil Young & Willie Nelson
WHY: Benefit for Bold Nebraska, IEN and the Cowboy & Indian Alliance
WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 27 at 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: The farm of Art & Helen Tanderup, near Neligh, NE

Willie Nelson and Neil Young will headline a concert in September in a Nebraska cornfield organized by opponents of a proposed pipeline that would carry oil from Canada south to the Gulf Coast.

Tickets for the benefit concert will go on sale Wednesday, Aug. 20 online via BoldNebraska.org.

From bh @ bad-news-beat.org/ (in Memory of The Baron Rouge):
Neligh, Nebraska — Two music legends — Neil Young and Willie Nelson — will perform a benefit concert Sept. 27 on a farm near Neligh, Nebraska that is on the route of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline and also crosses the historic Ponca Tribe "Trail of Tears."

Proceeds from the "Harvest the Hope" concert will go to Bold Nebraska, Indigenous Environmental Network and the Cowboy & Indian Alliance, to fund the ongoing fight against the Keystone XL pipeline, as well as a number of small, community-based clean energy projects on farms and tribal lands. The daytime, outdoor concert will take place in a field on a farm owned by the Tanderup family, who are part of a strong collective of Nebraska landowners refusing to sell their land to TransCanada for the Keystone XL (KXL) pipeline.

Art and Helen Tanderup are part of the "Cowboy & Indian Alliance," a group of farmers, ranchers and tribal members united in their desire to protect land and water, and in their opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline. This spring, the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma partnered with the "CIA" to hand-plant several acres of sacred Ponca corn on the Tanderup farm — the tribe's ancestral homeland — where it will be harvested this fall for the first time since the Ponca people were forced out of Nebraska 137 years ago.Last fall, the same land also became home to the world's largest living crop art installation, when artist John Quigley collaborated with Art Tanderup to create an image the size of 80 football fields featuring the Cowboy & Indian Alliance icon along with the words "Heartland #No KXL."

"Our family has worked this land for over 100 years. We will not allow TransCanada to come in here and destroy our land and water for their profit," said Nebraska farmer Art Tanderup. "The Heartland is more than a place, it's our home. We hope Americans from across the country join us to Harvest the Hope and stop the Keystone XL pipeline.""Farmers, ranchers and tribes that have been standing up to TransCanada are rock stars in my eyes," said Bold Nebraska director Jane Kleeb. "Now we will have the honor to have music legends Neil Young and Willie Nelson stand with us against this risky pipeline that threatens our water and our livelihoods. It is our hope that Pres. Obama in the end stands with us over Big Oil.

"In addition to sets from Neil Young and Willie Nelson, the "Harvest the Hope" concert will also feature performances by Frank Waln, a Native American hip-hop artist from the Rosebud Sioux tribe, and the "Stopping the Pipeline Rocks All-Stars," a collection of local Nebraska artists who performed on a benefit album recorded inside the clean energy-powered barn built by Bold Nebraska and volunteers on land directly in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline last year, near York, Nebraska.The event will also be a "Get Out the Vote" effort by Bold Nebraska, which is aiming to help elect candidates in November who give a damn about protecting our land and water.

Tickets for the benefit concert will go on sale Wednesday, Aug. 20 online via BoldNebraska.org.

The "Harvest the Hope" concert is being produced locally by 1% Productions in partnership with Bold Nebraska.

Yet Again, Tin Soldiers and Nixon's Coming


"Law never made men a whit more just; and, by means of their respect for it, even the well-disposed are daily made the agents of injustice."
  Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience, 1849

In case you might have missed it, Governor Nixon of Missouri has called out the state's National Guard unit to Ferguson, Missouri, in an attempt to restore order after the latest police "brutality" incident.

Tin Soldiers and Nixon's Coming, sadly, once again.

From Welcome Back to Pottersville: Tin Soldiers and Nixon's Coming by jurassicpork:
[Henry David Thoreau,] the New England transcendentalist and abolitionist who once famously said, "That government is best which governs least" would've been apoplectic had he seen what's going on in Ferguson, Missouri.

He definitely would've gone over the edge on hearing that [Missouri Governor] Jay Nixon, in an eerie reprisal of Kent State, had signed an executive order sending the National Guard to Ferguson and Florissant to oppose the largely peaceful protesters. Indeed, his executive order reads exactly like Orwellian boilerplate, with all the blame being cast on the civilians who have no weapons and have killed no one and even having the gall to invoke Mike Brown's name to restore order. You know, the Mike Brown who was murdered by a St. Louis County cop named Darren Wilson who didn't even know Brown was a suspect in a petty robbery and sparked off this massive, growing civil disobedience.

     Anyone even tangentially and obliquely familiar with his work could accurately anticipate the horror with which Thoreau would've viewed the reports coming out of Missouri. By today's standards and the rigid, ideological divisions of today, he would've been considered an odd duck: The man who'd famously built a cabin in Lincoln and lived among the flora and fauna, fighting tirelessly for the environment was America's proto-hippie. But there was another side to Thoreau who just as famously concluded that all governments are corrupt and, at best, were no more moral, just or legitimate than the free will of every and any individual.
More from Welcome Back to Pottersville: Tin Soldiers and Nixon's Coming.


"Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago."

Thank You for Supporting Thrasher's Wheat!



We've been thrilled to share the love and give away Neil Young concert tickets, books, posters, magazines and all sorts of other stuff. But the best of all is sharing what we call Neil Stories -- those which "emotionally resonate" with us all and make it such a joy to be part of the community of global rust.

Truly one the greatest highlights in the 18 years of Thrasher's Wheat existence was -- without a shred of doubt -- was taking Thrasher's Wheat Radio on WBKM.org to Europe last summer for the Neil Young & Crazy Horse Alchemy Tour.

Thrasher's Wheat Radio Supporters Go To Europe
for Neil Young & Crazy Horse Concert Tour - June 2013

As you may recall, earlier this year, we had Some Good News and Not So Good News. Essentially, Thrasher's Wheat last it's advertising partnership and the source of the majority of funding for running the Thrasher's Wheat blog.

But we harvest on here at Thrasher's Wheat undeterred because we have a job to do. So we formally invite you to join us in this venture: Support our blog, engage with us, and make your participation and support a reality. Find a level that suits you and slip into the groove.

We need ask for your financial support, at least at the most basic level of *just* $3 per year. Only $3 per year.

At less one penny a day, it’s less than your daily newspaper, cable television, subscription package or internet service. Less than a 6-pack of decent beer, even?! And you very well know the high quality of independent blogging, informed opinion, thoughtful commentary, wonderful and bizarre reader comments and warped humor you get here for that minimal contribution. Is there any other blog you read anywhere that provides you this much fun?

Donations are the only model we can see as we look ahead at the media landscape that faces us. Without a corporate sell-out (that would limit our independence) and without a mega patron (ahem... who would likely impose opinions and views while probably also staking out No-Go areas of speech) we simply cannot continue onwards toward the New Media Paradigm we’ve become. In addition to this blog, we also have Twitter and Facebook stream feeds, as well as an email list all requiring daily maintenance.

As the people-powered, irreverent blog that Thrasher's Wheat is, we can only remain this way with your help. Your support will let us continue to do what Thrasher's Wheat tries to do as well as possible. Won’t you please donate now? (securely, safely, privately)

Walk with us.

Support us now, please. It’s really easy, almost painless. Your support matters: it’s the only way we can see our way into the future.

Which we plan to continue, with your help. Today. Now. C'mon just 3 bucks. Only $3 today for a year of Neil fun. Such a deal. Thank you!







Only your credit card is necessary to apply directly & securely. No PayPal account setup necessary. (NOTE: A portion of ALL donations also help The Bridge School, Farm Aid, Musicares, and other worthy causes.)

This Blog's For You!

So Why Bother To Support Neil Young News on TW?

Our goal is simple: we create the best Neil Young blog we possibly can, refrain from contaminating it with nasty, evil corporate advertising, and then ask you to donate to us what you think it's worth. So far it seems to be working out sort of. We're not likely to break even on bandwidth and storage expenses (much less donated labor) this way, but that's not our goal.



Berlin - 2013

Here at TW we're not just non-commercial. We're anti-commercial. We feel that quality blogs and corporate advertising just cannot co-exist. We also choose to refrain from forcibly extracting money from you by charging subscription fees. We want to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed so generously over the past few years. We quite literally couldn't do it without you.

And, as always, we understand that contributing money is just not an option for some of you. That's fine. All posts, feeds and services at TW are open to everyone, and we will do everything in our power to keep it that way.

We’ve helped influence decisions on release formats and availability, we think, through our writing and your activism in response to it. We’ve exposed the hypocrisy of professional music critics and tried to speak out against the madness, fear and greed. All the while trying to find some hope in the future and have a little fun along the way!



But the basic underpinnings of our financial model haven’t changed: we’re often only one blog post away from pulling the plugs at any given moment.

So, here's how you can help.

Purchases via Amazon.com of *anything* (books, CD's, shoes, etc.) will provide Thrasher's Wheat with a small commission. All you have to do is click the banner above and shop. (Please shop locally and independently. But if you can't, we appreciate your supporting Thrasher's Wheat by clicking image above. Thanks!!!)

You have proven that Thrasher's Wheat matters to you, and that you support our mission: to bring free Neil Young knowledge to the planet, free of charge and as free as possible of advertising. You've helped make and keep Thrasher's Wheat available for the whole world. If you find this site helpful as a reference or news source, please help us continue to help all Neil Young fans. Hopefully, this will continue to work to help defray the costs of running Thrasher's Wheat. Any excess funds generated above and beyond operating expenses will be donated to The Bridge School.

Pulling the plug on TW simply cannot happen. After all, we've been implored to "Keep on bloggin' til the power goes out."

And if shopping for stuff isn't your thing, we understand.

Just spreading the word about Thrasher's Wheat is a huge help. If you have friends that you think might enjoy TW - please take a moment to drop them a note. Postings about TW on appropriate web forums are also a great way to spread the word. As a matter of fact, we have folks using our Thrasher's Wheat logo on their blogs!

So LIKE us on Facebook , follow us on Twitter and/or subscribe to our email list. (On occasion we pick random folks on the mailing list for little Neil treats. And no spam. We promise.)

In response to our semi-irregular begging fund-raising effort we also received some nice notes from our beloved readership. And -- as we are fond of saying in these tough times -- it is your words which really keep us going with our little Neil Young blog thing.

As some have suggested, "if there is a more balanced, fact based, deeply analytic, independent and proven insightful Neil blog, or voice than TW, better serving the relevant niche, than this one, we would like to see it. Whether you love or hate Neil, this blog is incredibly valuable for its depth and consistency of analysis."

We need your support as independent journalistic voices in the mass media milieu. Make no mistake, your support of all of our work here helps establish all of us as protected and respected bloggera, and we are thankful for the same.

If you are reading this, you either know, or should know, precisely what level of outstanding blogging that goes down daily here on TW.

Soldier Steve & Alchemy & TW Radio

So who is TW? We're a teeny, tiny non-profit that runs a popular Neil Young fan blog. We have only 1.5 staff but serve 1,000's & 1,000's, and we have costs like any other web sites: servers, power, programs, and ancillary costs. Folks think TW is special. We like that we're NOT behind a pay firewall but out in the open -- in public view --as it should be. Love all, serve all, as they say. It is like a temple for the mind, a place we can all go to think and learn. To protect our independence, we'll never *rarely* run ads. We take no record label funds. We survive on donations averaging about $5. Now is the time we ask. If everyone reading this gave $5, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. If Thrasher's Wheat is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Neil news.


Berlin - 2013

That said, this posting violates all our precepts here at TW -- it’s the time of year we do something we hate, which is asking for your support.

We hate it for two reasons:

One: many of our supporters are in dire straits economically and have no money to contribute. Even for those fortunate to have jobs and homes and food, it’s still been a tough of late. If you don’t have funds to spare, don’t even think about giving.

Two: Far more than we want people giving money, we want people taking action. That’s our first, second, and third priority -- that’s what we ask for 9 times out of 10. Videos, photos, reviews, comments. That truly supports TW.

But we’ve had so many people taking so many actions this year that this whole blog continues to grow -- those less crazy than those early days of the 21st century. It’s completely great. And it means we need the resources to coordinate it all, to make it more than the sum of its parts.

So today, we’re asking you to chip in what you can. So, if you can
here


These periodic blog fund-raisers, play a vital role in supporting the work we do here. Reader support in all its forms really is central to the work we do here, and it’s very appreciated, gratifying, and helpful.


Hamburg, Germany, June 2013

The most vital attribute of our work, by far, is full-scale independence — the ability to write on any topics of importance free of concerns about offending potential advertisers or fear of other forms of implications — and it’s reader support that makes that possible. This model ensures that we have only one constituency that matters — our readers — and that, in turn, means we need only be concerned with producing work that is as informative, as consequential and, most of all, as honest as possible. Neil has always been faithful to his word in honoring our unfettered editorial independence while publishing this blog, which is one reason it’s been a great platform for our work, but it is reader support that permits us to spend a portion of our time voluntarily writing here every day and doing the work we think will do the most good without any fears or constraints.

There is widespread and always-growing concern about the inability of blogging endeavors to find a sustainable financial model, particularly with the ever expanding Internet. But we think the Internet has highlighted one of the best ways to enable independent blogging: through reader support. This is not a brand new approach, nor is it one confined to smaller outlets. But for us, this is the model that permits us to engage in the optimal form of independent blogging and generally maintain independence.

Those wishing to participate can do so via Paypal by clicking the button above.

As always, we genuinely appreciate all forms of reader involvement here; the communal nature of Internet writing is one of its most valuable characteristics, and an active, vibrant, supportive readership has been crucial to blogging the Neil scene since 1996 (and on a daily basis since 2003) in so many ways.

Words, such as these, by the oh-so delightfully handled ShittyHorse:
Thrasher, what you provide to us Neil Fanatics is truly invaluable.

I visit other "Neil Sites", and Thrasher's Wheat is by far my favorite, not to diminish others, just my personal preference. You've created a strong community here, where Neil fans can talk everything Neil- from news and events to albums, songs, concerts, personal experiences and feelings, band members and other musicians, but most of all you give us a place to gather, to show our numbers, and be with others who truly understand why Neil's music touches us in such a profound and meaningful way.

I think it's safe to say that we all, even the most critical fans, appreciate the hard work and dedication that you and Thrashette put into this site. Times are tough, which is why your site and others like it become more and more important- it provides a much needed escape at times, entertainment, information and always puts a smile on my face. Even Neil Young himself has recognized the importance of Thrasher's Wheat.

You are part of Neil history and, in turn, Rock n' Roll History.

From here on I'd say any definitive book written on Neil's life and career would be lacking if missing a Thrasher's Wheat reference- you've been a liaison between the fans and the man himself. What you do is important and appreciated. Never loose heart.

I've made a large purchase this morning on Amazon through this site, as I always try to do, which I hope helps out. Of course it is a small thing, but if all your readers did this same, one small thing I'm sure it would help out a lot.

Again, thank you for your hard work, and devotion, not only to Neil but also his fans.

Happy Holidays to you and Thrashette!
Thanks SH! We appreciate your kind words of support. Always and sincerely.

Again, thanks everyone for their contributions. But mostly thanks for all the reviews, photos, links, videos, and comments. And your kind and supportive words, especially. We truly enjoy sharing the Neil love around the world. We've been doing this on & off for 18 years on Rust/HH/RH and 15 years on TW and we'd really like to continue -- readers willing.


Author Dave Zimmer
On The Beach with Thrasher's Wheat Radio


So by helping us out, you'll also help out to spread the Neil love around the world. And -- maybe in some small way -- it all helps the Bridge School, Farm Aid, Musicares, and the LincVolt project. Because we all want to light a candle, make a difference, be the rain, and be the change.

Be the wheat.
peace and love,

thrasher & thrashette

Arcade Fire Cover Neil Young’s* “Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown” in Winnipeg Last Night



Arcade Fire covered Danny Whitten's “Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown,” last night in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
A fitting tribute to Winnipeg's Neil. (*Though Neil Young did get a secondary writing credit for contributing the "Sure enough they'll be selling stuff ..." verse - Thanks Anon!)

Not sure about the paper mâché heads tho?

Also, see Neil Young emphasizes what’s missing on “Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown” | The A.V. Club.

Remembering Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry...

Neil Young's 1975 "Tonight's The Night" is considered to be his 'darkest' album - both literally and figuratively - and the last of the "Ditch Trilogy" (along with Times Fade Away and On The Beach). The album explores the depth of Neil's pain over the heroin overdose deaths of Crazy Horse's Danny Whitten and roadie Bruce Berry.
