Post a live video

I feel like I might also have posted this before, but nevermind…

Shara Nova is just amazing here. The Decemberists have such theatre to their live shows. I’d love to have seen this tour.

New live performance session from Anna Tivel, a new to me artist I was introduced to last year. I also had the good fortune of seeing her perform her newest album, Outsiders when she came to my area.

Yes, as the Beatles had it- “take a sad song and make it better” :slightly_smiling_face:

My newfound Phoebe Bridgers fandom has also taken me down the Julien Baker rabbit hole. For some reason, I’d even somehow managed to forget I own her second album, Turn Out the Lights which came out in 2017. I’m not sure what led me to her back then but likely either KEXP, Uncut, Mojo or some combination thereof.

Wet Leg are the kinda infectious bubblegum rock we needed after 2021.

Houses of the Holy was released 50 years ago today. I was 10 at the time. This is a live performance of “Over the Hills and Far Away” from Earl’s Court a couple years later.

@DriverNate Led Zep were big when I was at Uni 40 odd years ago amongst the boys esp Led Zep IV. I liked Stairway to Heaven best

In honour of World Bipolar Day (Vincent’s birthday) today. I love this song. In fact, I went around singing it together with American Pie all over my home town when I was 18 (mainly on the tube and in the streets) which helped me be sectioned and diagnosed with bipolar. I also went to see Don McClean twice back then. My GP thought I was just a naughty girl but my parents and friends knew something was wrong! Anyway, long story short, I got the right treatment and have lived a (relatively) full life, thank God. We have our National Bipolar UK conference later on Zoom today

Emmylou Harris is celebrating a birthday today.

@DriverNate Not a “live video” as such but a live performance and I always loved her version of this song:

“Elevation” by U2, from the Elevation Tour in Boston DVD.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObxhzY7_vtQ

First time I saw U2 was within a couple weeks of the Boston shows, so the DVD always reminded me of the show I was at. This is mainly how I picture U2 to myself – certainly I was aware of them in the 90s and even the late 80s (definitely too young to remember them from the early 80s), but it was before this album that I started really listening to them, and then going to a show on this tour, so this is how I think of them. (Which, just realizing, they’re a bit more than 20 years older than me, so this is awfully close to how old I am now.)

The last U2 show I went to was the Joshua Tree tour in Nov. 2019, just before Covid hit. They were awesome. A memorable joy before all the Covid lock downs started in 2020.

My first opportunity to see U2 was in 1983 when the War tour kicked off at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, NC. Also on the bill were the Producers and Grandmaster Flash. Todd Rundgren (solo) was the headliner. I was in college radio at the time and was all about some U2. However, I was reluctant to travel to out of town concerts by myself. It was also difficult, if not impossible to find folks to go, especially when it came to artists that were considered alternative (or whatever the word was back then). So, I missed them, which remains one of my biggest concert regrets.
I finally saw them on the 360° tour in 2009. I enjoyed it and was glad to finally see U2 but at the same time I knew I wasn’t seeing the young and hungry U2 of 1983. More than a few folks I know that were there say it’s one of their favorite concerts of all time. If you do some digging you should be able to find some photos, audio, and interviews with I believe Bono and the Edge. It started raining during U2’s set. At one point, Bono climbed the scaffolding onto the roof of the stage where he sang a brief bit of “Singing in the Rain.” From most accounts, Todd Rundgren was the whimper after the bang. Evidently, he played to only a small crowd as most everyone left after U2.

@DriverNate I first saw U2 in our Uni refectory and Bono was dressed in a Tarzan outfit singing I Will Follow and swinging about as in this video. Awesome stuff!
