Newstalgia Backstage Weekend - Mazzy Star - Live In Chicago - 1994.

Newstalgia Backstage Weekend with Mazzy Star in concert from Chicago - December 11, 1994.

<strong>Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star - ethereal voice most recently loaned out to Massive Attack.</strong>


One of my favorite bands this weekend and from an earlier incarnation. Mazzy Star, although probably not a household name with a lot of people, is nonetheless one of the more influential bands to come along in some time. With the other-worldly voice of Hope Sandoval, Mazzy Star have maintained an avid fan base for quite a while. Although not officially broken up, but in various states of hiatus, allowing Sandoval to loan her ethereal talents to the likes of Massive Attack, Mazzy Star are rumored to have reconvened and are slated to tour sometime next year. Nothing firm and no confirmations, but wonderful news if that's true.

But in the meantime, here is a concert Mazzy Star did in Chicago, recorded on December 11, 1994.

In lieu of actually catching them live, this is the next best thing and hopefully will cause you to eye tickets when the time comes next year. Should be a great concert, just like this one.
