Arranca el festival Light of Day

LOD2014byJeffRossComo cada año, el festival Light of Day ofrece durante diez días docenas de actuaciones a mitad de enero en distintos locales de Nueva York y Nueva Jersey, en favor de la fundación del mismo nombre y la lucha contra la enfermedad del Parkinson. Bob Benjamin creó la fundación en 2000 y lo que empezó siendo un pequeño concierto de un día ha acabado en un verdadero festival (con sus extensiones en Canada y Europa en otros momentos del año).

Desde la primera edición ha contado con la inestimable colaboración de Bruce Springsteen, quien ha actuado en once de las catorce ediciones celebradas hasta ahora. Junto a él han participado una lista enorme de artistas comprometidos, desde los habituales Joe Grushecky, Willie Nile, Jesse Malin, Garland Jeffreys y Joe D’Urso a celebridades como Michael J. Fox y Vincent Pastore (Los Soprano) y artistas de reconocido prestigio como Lucinda Williams, Jakob Dylan, John Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), Ed Kowalczyk (Live), Alejandro Escovedo, Badly Drawn Boy, Pete Yorn o Gary US Bonds

El concierto principal del festival tendrá lugar el sábado 17 de enero en el teatro Paramount de Asbury Park, y para este 15 aniversario cuentan con la actuación de La Bamba’s Big Band con Southside Johnny y Gary US Bonds. ¿Y Springsteen? Su presencia no está confirmada y supone una sorpresa, y más en esta XV edición. Si nada se lo impide y tiene libre su agenda, Bruce siempre está dispuesto a colaborar y podría ser la guinda a un magnífico pastel.

Como en 2014, hemos organizado un viaje a este festival. Un nutrido grupo de lectores de Point Blank se desplazará a Nueva York y Asbury Park esta semana, y mandaremos información en directo del concierto del sábado noche (aproximadamente a partir de las 3:30 de la madrugada del domingo 18), via Twitter (Síguenos: @pointblankspain).
