Neil Young has teamed up with Promise of the Real, a band featuring Lukas and Micah Nelson (sons of Willie Nelson) and recorded an album, The Monsanto Years. The album criticizes food industry giant Monsanto. Neil will be touring behind the album and Puss n Boots will be opening for Neil at four shows on the East Coast in July. I’ve listed the shows below. None are in New York City itself.
July 17 – Bethel Woods Center for the Arts – Bethel, NY
July 19 – Champlain Valley Expo – Essex Junction, VT
July 21 – Jones Beach – Wantagh, NY
July 22 – Xfinity Center – Great Woods, MA
As Seen on TV: Congratulations to Misty Boyce. Misty has had two of her songs used in connection with TV shows: The Nest was used in last week’s episode of Finding Carter, and Broken Hearted Girl was the background music in an online promo for an episode of CSI: Cyber. Jess Klein, who played NYC last week, also has a song in a movie to be released later this year.
