Spearhead NYE In Vancouver


Too often Americans forget to think of our good neighbors to the north, but thankfully Michael Franti & Spearhead are doing their part to rectify this oversight over the year-changing holidays ahead. The "How ya feelin'" man and his talented cohorts will celebrate New Year's Eve at The Vogue Theater in Vancouver, British Columbia, in an event described as following:

Where curiosity and curioso abounds! Come one, come all! A delightful treat to your ears and eyes for the whole family! Music, amusements, clowns, antics, libations and more! Make an outrageous hat + costume for fantastic prizes!

Spearhead performs at The Vogue Theater on December 30th and 31st.

Here's Franti riffing off the top of his agile dome on a recent segment on BeatTV:

Interesting, a guy who named himself phattiesomething is complaining about a jamband singer who gives herbal shout outs. Franti is not bad but not great either.

Franti, absolutely nothing personal, your entire stance on music is fucking pathetic. Again nothing personal i just dont wanna hear your fucking politics, i get it. Then agian what the fuck do i know. Although i think this is just feeding the masses of mindless heads, what the fuck do i know. Again nothing personable, i know nothing.

'not bad but not great either' says absolutely nothing about what you think of anything. I'm glad you don't write reviews for shows on jambase...yah it was my first time experiencing this band and let me just say, they were pretty good but not extremely great, and no where near horrible...another genius quote from dew, "Fire fire fire, light up your lighter (15x)"

^^^as soon as you stop listening.......i personally LOVE franti, but in all seriousness, if you don't like it then it will "go away" as soon as you stop listening.....don't wait for him to quit or die or anything like that; just stop listening and stop posting/reading articles about him and he'll be "gone" from your mind............i am grateful that he, along with only a handful of other musicians have heart and can walk his talk....most of you posting negative shit about this man, have you seen "i know i'm not alone?"...have you put down the pipe long enough to recognize how different this guy is than your typical jamband group?...so he says "how ya feelin'" a bit too often for your tastes, don't belittle what message this guy is passing on through his music....

Spearhead killed it 10,000 lakes fest last summer...I am well versed with the typical franti banter (sci and phish banter as well for that matter) and would like to suggest to any interested parties that they go to iclips.net and stream spearheads show from 10klf. It is sick!!

Far away from my usual Philly and NYC stomping grounds for New Years, this is a nice find for the northwest. Seattle has little to offer, and the weather sucks, so why not dance my ass off to some Spearhead. I wouldn't tour with Franti, but he is a true showman, and I always enjoy his shows. Bring it!

Seattle dominates the Northeast, Spearhead knows where to be when the clocks turns to 2009, the Pacific Northwest! This show is going to be sick

I bet he is going to say "How Y'all Feelin!" 2009 times during that show.

oh nooo he shouted keller smokes pot. i was there and it wasn't a great performance with keller but who the hell cares if he says that i mean its pretty clear they both smoke...and then the people that say you don't want to listen to his music because his political stance, get your head out of your ass.
