Back in September, dozens of bands got together to perform at the 2013 New England Americana Festival in Harvard Square. It was a superb two days of music. I filmed many of the outdoor performances. First up is Sarah Blacker performing “Shiver” from her new album Precious Little Things.

Back in May, I shot video at The Rationales album release party for “The Distance In Between” at the Lizard Lounge. They were joined by old soul rock ‘n’ rollers OldJack. Watch, listen and enjoy! You can become a fan of Sooz TV on Facebook and subscribe to the Sooz TV channel at YouTube.

New on Sooz TV: Canadian power pop rockers Sloan at TT The Bear’s on December 3

[tweetmeme]

Sloan brought their epic power pop rock and roll to TT The Bear’s in Cambridge, MA on December 3, 2009. It was the first time I had seen them since 1996 or 1997. Crazy, yet true! They were as awesome live as I remembered them all those years ago. They’ve got a new EP out called “Hit & Run” that you can buy on iTunes. And why wouldn’t you? It’s awesome and only $3.99. Bargain! Check it out and buy it. Special thanks to the pesky drunk couple who I somehow inspired to move away from the front of the stage so people around me could enjoy the show without the two of them falling over on us. ;)
