Johnny Depp and Haim Join ‘Superband’
By DONNA BALANCIA — The New Basement Tapes proved work and friendship can indeed mix, performing a “one and only” show that knocked the socks off a curious LA audience in Hollywood Thursday night.
The band, comprised of Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford played the songs each had co-written to Bob Dylan lyrics discovered in Dylan’s upstate New York home.
It was a night not to be forgotten for the crowd at the Montalban Theatre in Hollywood, as the group performed songs including “Kansas City,” “When I Get My Hands on You,” “Card Shark,” and others off the new album “Lost On The River.”
Produced by T Bone Burnett, Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes brought together the supergroup and their lively performance in a “one night only”-billed affair.
The New Basement Tapes musicians were also joined onstage by the sisters Haim, and Johnny Depp.
