Session Americana returned to the Lizard Lounge in December for a month of Tuesday shows. Gathering around a small table with ambient mics, they play a mix of originals and covers. These videos are two of their popular covers: “The Shape I’m In” by The Band and “Dig A Little Deeper In The Well” by Flatt & Scruggs.
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. ;)
[tweetmeme] It’s an annual tradition for Boston bands to perform Halloween shows covering bands they love or just feel inspired to cover for the night. This year I got some great performances recorded on video: John Powhida and Chris Cote as Robert Palmer, Preacher Roe as The Replacements, The Luxury as Duran Duran and The Lights Out as Phil Collins. You can watch all eight videos in the playlist below or watch each individual Boston Rocks Halloween video on YouTube.
