This has been a Friday feature, but I work Saturdays now. So does Riley. The significance of Friday has been diminished for us. We would still like to share some music though and Friday or Saturday, work or not, as R. Kells says, "it's the freakin' weekend."
Big week upcoming for My Morning Jacket with their performance of each of their albums in their entirety in a five night run at Terminal 5 in New York. I'm looking forward to hearing about those shows (maybe getting down for the Evil Urges performance?). This past week MMJ performed at Ed Sullivan Theater as part of their 10/12 appearance on the Late Show w/ David Letterman. Head over to The Steam Engine to download the entire performance. All this MMJ action though got me digging up their version of 'Gideon' from the 8/17/10 show in Chicago we attended. Let that lead us off today. You can download the entire Chicago show here.
My Morning Jacket - Gideon (live 8/17/10 Chicago, IL)
Had a chance to catch these guys at Schuba's this summer at a post lollapalooza show. Good tune.
Rogue Wave - Lake Michigan (live 1/8/08 Los Angeles, CA)
With the NHL season just underway here's a classic hockey song (rumored to being made into a movie).
Warren Zevon - Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song) live 12/2/00 Philadelphia, PA
I think Riley was gonna go to this show but didn't make it. Here's The Walkmen from their 10/13/10 show at Metro.
The Walkmen - Canadian Girl (live 10/13/10 Chicago, IL)
And finally, one from the Drive By Truckers recent performance at Pabst Theater in Milwaukee. One of my favorite DBT songs.
