Neil Young Doom-Ditch Trilogy Tribute
Celebrating the depths of winter, Neil Young's Doom-Ditch Trilogy was presented in it's entirety by some of Portland, Oregon's finest musicians last week. The Minus 5, Lewi Longmire Band, and The Don of Division Street Band paid tribute to Neil Young's mid-70's, dark masterpieces of rock and roll.
The Doom-Ditch Trilogy Tribute was held on Friday, 1/30/09, at Dante's in Portland, Oregon.
Time Fades Away, On the Beach, Tonight's the Night, collectively known to Young fans as the Doom or Ditch trilogy, were released in the wake of the deaths of two close friends of Neil and detail the madness and darkness of this time in his creative life. Musicians from REM, The Young Fresh Fellows, Fernando, Richmond Fontaine, Dr. Theopolis, and others were featured on this night of rock and roll tribute.
