You may recall Werewolves On Wheels from Pulp Fiction Thursday a few weeks ago. It’s time to unleash the whole damn movie on an unsuspecting public.
The SMV is back from hiatus with the VICE episode that everyone’s talking about:
Here’s a recent set from the Sellersville Theater in Sellersville, PA. Apparently, it’s a Sellersville market…
It’s the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Detroit riot. This 2002 HBO documentary takes a look at the riot and why it didn’t happen again the next summer. The main reason was the 1968 World Champion Tigers.
The two great jazz keyboard players had, of course, met before this joint appearance on Soundstage in 1974. The show features short sets by Return To Forever and the Headhunters followed by a Chick and Herbie piano duet.
I know they don’t call themselves the Alvin Brothers. Whatever they call themselves, this is a helluva set. Enjoy.
It’s always fun to stumble into a show you attended. J. Geils were a helluva good opening act for the Stones but the Stick was a horrible place to see a concert. I hate stadium concerts even when spectacle is involved. That’s why Dr. A and are babysitting three blue-eyed hellions this September instead of seeing U2. I may live to regret this decision.
It’s documentary time. The film that put Ken Burns on the map in 1985: Huey Long.
It’s an Infinity Hall Live compilation featuring Tori Amos, Aimee Mann, Shelby Lynne, The Wailin’ Jenny’s, Wilson Phillips, and Joan Osborne
I originally planned to post this 2011 set on the Sunday after their first album was featured on ACAW. Better late than never.
Here’s a 1984 set from the Heartbeat City tour:
Here’s a 2006 set with a guest appearance by former band member Michael McDonald:
Here’s a 1992 set from the I’m Alive tour:
I’d somehow missed this gem. It’s the classic Genesis lineup of Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford, and Phil Collins. It was filmed during the Selling England By The Pound tour. What’s not to like about that? Not a damn thing.
Here’s a 2011 show courtesy of Connecticut Public Broadcasting:
It’s no secret that my colleague Athenae does not share my enthusiasm for the Beatles. But Illinois based rockers Cheap Trick are Beatlemaniacs. This week’s SMV brings together some of CT’s best Beatles covers. We begin with a song from Revolver:
Are you ready to roll up for the mystery tour?
Next up an all-star hair band live version of Get Back:
I’ve got a good reason for posting this version of Day Tripper:
It’s hippie dippy anthem time:
I rarely post audience videos but this one has good sound and no inane chit-chat. Besides, it’s *the* medley from Abbey Road. Say no more.
Cheap Trick has performed Sgt. Pepper in its entirety more than a few times since the LP’s 40th anniversary. We’ll close with a selection of tunes from that Beatles classic. Hmm, I wonder if Rick Nielsen is really Billy Shears?
The only way to finish this epic post is with the ultimate John Lennon song:
It’s Carnival, so it’s Dr. John time:
