MSG Entertainment announced today that DISPATCH, joined by special guest the John Butler Trio, will return to the stage at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 8:00PM for “DISPATCH: HUNGER,” an event geared to shine a light on the issue of hunger in the United States. DISPATCH made their Madison Square Garden debut in 2007 for a similar event, “DISPATCH: ZIMBABWE,” where they became the first independent band in history to not only headline the legendary venue, but also sell out three consecutive nights. This year, a limited time Chase Advance Ticket sale will be available for Chase credit or debit purchases starting Friday, January 16, 2015 at 12:00PM through Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 10:00PM while supplies last. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 12:00PM. Madison Square Garden will be the only place to see DISPATCH in North America in 2015.
DISPATCH members Brad Corrigan, Chad Stokes and Pete Francis met in college, formed a band, and with no radio airplay, major-label support, or significant press coverage, quickly became one of the biggest draws on the live music scene. Though DISPATCH hadn’t released a full-length album since 2000 and officially called it quits in 2004, their music continued to capture the hearts and minds of new generations of rock fans through pure word-of-mouth.
Say goodbye to 2014 with Nettwerk Music Group’s Year-End playlist. In celebration of another great year, here’s a list of our favorite videos and tracks we’ve released over the last year. Listen on YouTube (see above), Spotify or SoundCloud. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
“[The] score from British composer Ilan Eshkeri doesn’t tell you how to feel, but rather how [Alice] feels: lost, emotional and anxious most of the time.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
“The score, by Ilan Eshkeri, is also a standout, covering everything from beautiful notes in near-silence to sequences that are meant to — and do — evoke Alice's confusion and loss.” – James Rocchi, The Wrap
“Still Alice has an exceptionally lovely, yearning score by Ilan Eshkeri for violin, viola, cello, and piano.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine's Vulture
Nettwerk is proud to release the Still Alice: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack on January 13, just a few days before the wide opening of the film on January 16. Composed by acclaimed British composer Ilan Eshkeri (The Young Victoria, Stardust), the score has already received critical praise for its beautiful accentuation of the film’s highly emotional journey, which follows Alice Howland (portrayed by 2015 Golden Globe-nominee Julianne Moore) as she struggles with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. The album will also feature a cover of Lyle Lovett’s “If I Had A Boat” by British musician Karen Elson, which plays during the credits at the end of the film.
Ilan Eshkeri is an award-winning British composer known for his film scores to Stardust, The Young Victoria and Kick-Ass, as well as his many collaborations with recording artists and his concert work. Last Christmas saw Eshkeri’s score The Snowman and The Snowdog, the sequel to the British animated classic The Snowman, for which he earned BAFTA nomination.
