Foo Fighters – Bridge School 2011

The Foo Fighters are one of those fantastic live bands that translates beautifully to an acoustic setting. Their set from Sunday night’s Bridge School Benefit show displays just that.

The sound gets a little muddy when the Foos turn it up, but this is definitely worth a listen. Grab the entire show here, or stream the tracks below.

1. Skin and Bones
2. My Hero
3. Walk

Glen Hansard – PJ20 Day 2

I’m sitting here at work, speechless, listening to Glen Hansard wow the crowd at PJ20, and realizing that I missed out in a huge way when I decided to miss his opening act for Eddie Vedder back in June. Thank goodness for bootlegs, though. His cover of Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks is wonderful, and his duet with Eddie Vedder on Falling Slowly is just gorgeous.

Stream the tracks below, or download the entire show here. (You can also grab his Day 1 set here.) Continue reading

Bon Iver – 930 Club

Some musicians are able to exude a certain aura onstage. They have something inside of them that’s more than just a performer or an entertainer. There’s a certain pining in the performance that draws the audience into the private world of the songwriter, inspiring and stunning them. But when those listening at home can experience these same feelings, the same connection to the music and chills during the performance, you know that this is a special performer. Continue reading

Amy Winehouse: 1983 – 2011

It was with sadness that I turned on the computer after Shabbat this week to discover that Amy Winehouse had passed away. Her life was a tragically brilliant one, with her unbelievable talent weighted down by her demons of addiction. Her sultry jazz voice was well beyond her years, and the beautiful songs she wrote didn’t always seem to match her persona.

And while the gossip columnists will spend the next few weeks hypothesizing about the cause of death, at the end of the day that’s irrelevant. What we had here was a fantastic singer and songwriter who was taken well before her time – joining the terrible 27-club already populated by Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain. Now, Amy Winehouse too, is a member. She has tragically joined the ranks of a legion of brilliant musicians who all died well before their time. Continue reading

Local Natives – Sasquatch 2011

I’ve seen the Local Natives in concert two times, and I can confidently say that they are one of the best young live acts out there. So, it goes without saying that any live bootleg of theirs that I come into contact with will be shared in this forum of mine. So grab the show here, or stream the tracks below, and enjoy the beautiful noise that is the Local Natives. Continue reading

The Decemberists – Sasquatch 2011

The Decemberists are quite good live. I’d elaborate, but I’ve already written about it when I reviewed their live show. Plus, it’s late and I’m exhausted. So let the music speak for itself. Grab their entire Sasquatch 2011 set here, or stream the individual tracks below. Continue reading

Girl Talk – Live in Hookaville

None of the credit here is mine – I just grabbed this bootleg from YANP and it’s really a good one. So here’s a re-post of the show for stream/download.

For those unfamiliar with GT, the boot is all in one track not because we were too lazy to break it up; rather his shows are all one endless song with thousands of never-ending samples that somehow all work well together. If you still don’t understand, just press play – you’ll get it soon enough.
