Neil Young is rock ‘n’ roll. In fact, he’s so rock ‘n’ roll, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had to induct him twice: once for his stint in the folk-rock quartet Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, and once for his body of work as a frenetic, genre-bending solo artist. Each one of Neil’s 34 and counting solo albums is distinctive, always finding new ways to explore emotion and bulldoze musical boundaries. He dabbled in soul with Booker T. & the M.G.s on 2002’s Are You Passionate? and even experimented with sci-fi electronica on 1982’s Trans. When he’s stripped down, armed with just his acoustic guitar, harmonica, and caterwauling voice, he can charm a sunbeam and make a mountain cry. But when he rides in ragged glory with Crazy Horse, his longtime brothers in noise, he’s heavier than the heaviest metal, harder than the hardest rock, and more punk than a legion of Johnny Rottens.
For their first tour together since 2004’s small-town concept album Greendale, Neil Young and Crazy Horse circle their feedback wagons for a blowout of songs from the past, present, and future. Touting their recently released record, Americana, Neil and the impregnable rhythm section of bassist Billy Talbot, drummer Ralph Molina, and second guitarist Frank “Poncho” Sampedro mutate standards such as “Oh! Susanna” and “This Land is Your Land” into chugging anthems for rail-shunning locomotives. “They’re songs we all know from kindergarten,” explains Young, and through the murky distortion of Crazy Horse, they regain their original sense of political rebellion and darkened narrative. Fans can also expect a slew of past hits filtered through Neil’s claw-hammering ax, from the twangy noodling of “Powderfinger” to the reverb-soaked “Like a Hurricane” and the inertial crunch of “Cinnamon Girl,” with perhaps one or two 26-minute nuggets from next year’s album. Opening the show, fellow sonic excursionists Los Lobos continue to stuff pigeonholes in square pegs with their lucid blend of Latin music, roots rock, and experimental soundscapes.
