I'm seeing Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings on Thursday at the Beacon. She always puts on an amazing show.

Re: R.I.P

Sad news. I saw Pete a few years ago at the Newport Folk Festival. There's been some Twitter chatter about naming the soon-to-be-built replacement for New York's Tappan Zee Bridge after Pete. That would be a lovely gesture.

Don't know how I left Laura Marling off my list, but she's probably be at the top.

Re: Favorites of 2013 in CD

My purchases have fallen way off this year, so I don't know that I'd have ten to include. Very much enjoyed WUG. In addition i will put in a good word for Richard Thompson's Electric. Would also echo the praise for the Dylan Self Portrait re-issue and Bowie.

Re: Richard Thompson question

His new album, Electric, is excellent as well. Not a lot of clunkers in his catalogue. Maybe a bit of dated production in some of his 1980s albums but the songs overcome it.

Re: New Gig Thread

You haven't read any of his novels, have you? (Assuming he already has published some.) Spent some time last night at my weekly band rehearsal working on 16 Military Wives with my chums. Should be a fun song to play to people even if they won't have a clue what it is. Pretty immediate. Any thoughts...

Re: New Gig Thread

I remember it well! Doesn't CM have a solo album coming out, or am I just thinking of this solo tour? Never seen him/them. Would love to see The Engine Driver and a few others. He talked about working on another Decemberists album that may be recorded soon. There have been some solo EPs, but no ful...

Re: New Gig Thread

Great show by Colin Meloy last Friday at Town Hall, which is probably my fave NY venue now, eclipsing the Beacon and Bowery Ballroom. Apart from the single Kinks tune, which Wilco also covered when I saw them over the summer, it was all Decemberists back catalogue stuff with a few new tunes thrown i...

Re: New Gig Thread

Richard Thompson was simply amazing. What a great night. Teddy played about 6 songs to open, and they played together during the first encore. RT's set was something like this: I Misunderstood Saving the Good Stuff for You Valerie Johnny's Far Away 1952 Vincent Black Lightning Pharaoh Blackleg Miner...

Re: New Gig Thread

I came home after a pretty long week, made a long G&T and put on Impossible Germany. One of the best guitar solos ever? Yep that was fantastic as well. I'd seen them do some of the same material a few years ago at an outdoor concert but if they are playing anywhere near me I'll always make an e...

Re: New Gig Thread

Saw Ryan Bingham, My Morning Jacket and Wilco a few weeks ago. Big revelation for me was My Morning Jacket. I didn't know their stuff too well, but really loved their live set. Jim James is a pretty compelling performer and their kind of spacy psychedelia suited my mood. Wilco was magnificent as alw...
