Massive Attack call for government plan to cut live music’s carbon emissions | Climate crisis

A plan to ensure the live music industry meets climate targets needs to be urgently introduced by the government, according to the band Massive Attack, which commissioned a report on carbon emissions in the music business.

While the report by the University of Manchester recommends rock stars should take some responsibility, ditching private jets and reducing the amount of kit they bring on tour, Massive Attack’s Rob Del Naja, otherwise known as 3D, criticised the government for not doing enough to support the industry to reduce carbon emissions.

He said: “Where’s the industrial plan for the scale of the

The Memo: Live music is new battlefield in COVID-19 war

Live music has become one more battlefield in the nation’s culture war over COVID-19.

Americana star Jason Isbell recently announced he would require all fans at his forthcoming shows to be vaccinated or show a negative test result. 

But that’s the kind of move more mainstream country artists have generally resisted. 

One such artist, Jason Aldean, told a Long Island, N.Y., audience from the stage earlier this month, “The coolest thing about all this [is] I don’t see one f—— mask … I’ve had just about enough of that shit.”

Young couple prefers to live in the past with 1930s lifestyle

One young couple has taken vintage shopping to an extreme.

British couple Ruth Shelley, 28, and her partner, Robert Oestmann, 27, have sworn off modern-day amenities. Well, most of them, anyway.

Their favorite recipe: A depression-era meatloaf made with tomato soup.

The couple has credited their lifestyle to benefitting their relationship, allowing the

Live Music Is Back! (Live Music Is Back?)

As the concert business amped up again, our critic booked six weeks seeing shows in honky-tonks, clubs and arenas. But concerns about Covid-19 became the unannounced guest on nearly every lineup.

I’ll confess up front that I walked into the Jacob Collier show at the Blue Note New York with some apprehension.

It was June 21, the night after Foo Fighters rechristened Madison Square Garden with its first concert since March 2020 — the event meant to symbolize the reawakening of New York City’s live-music business. But the Garden is vast, and the West Village jazz club is smaller than
