Weekend Concert Series: Steve Earle

Let’s check in with Steve Earle, shall we?

Here he is with his guitar in 1991, live at McCabes. Where is McCabes? I do not know. Oceanside? Austin? I suppose it doesn’t matter much.

I’ve never seen Mr. Earle perform, but have heard a few of his albums, all of which seem smart, interesting, and worthy of multiple listens. He’s a good counterpart to Billy Bragg in many ways. They would make quite a pair for a double bill.

Weekend Concert Series: Billy Bragg

By informal request, Billy Bragg is our featured performer this weekend. Here he is playing live for a small audience in Austin in 2013 on radio station KEXP during a SXSW.

I chose this one because it was filmed quite nicely, but better performances can be found elsewhere on the internet. Consider this a simple introduction that can lead to further study.

Weekend Concert Series: Simon & Garfunkel in Central Park

New York City, early September, 1981. Newspapers and posters around town have announced that Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel will be performing together in Central Park next week.

A half million people showed up for the free benefit concert. Even more watched it on HBO, and money was raised to restore portions of Central Park. It didn't matter that the two really didn't like one another, or that Paul was a bit mean to Art during the show. The crowd loved it.

Get ready for bands and artists such as The Style Council, Boomtown Rats, Adam Ant, Ultravox, Elvis Costello, Sade, Sting, Phil Collins, Howard Jones, Brian Ferry, U2, Dire Straits, David Bowie, the Who, Elton John, and others. The set by Queen is regarded as one of the all time great live performances.

Weekend Concert Series: BIS 10th Anniversary 1007, Glasgow

You might not know about BIS, but you should. High-energy, political, dance music from the Scottish trio of Manda Rin, Sci-Fi Steven, and John Disco. They started in 1994, self-released a few things before being picked up by the Beastie Boy’s label, Grand Royal and then, of course, broke up.

One of their best known releases was The New Transistor Heroes, and this concert came from a three night return to the stage 10 years after its release (and a few years after the band broke up). They run through the whole disc at this show, and have a few backstage moments.
