PBS-E is showing a two hour concert of The Who live in Kilburn 1977 at 10 pm tonight - 45 minutes from now!!!!
Thanks. I will have a look.
As I mentioned in the movie thread, I'm watching a doc on Pavarotti - he's singing with friends Bono, Sting, Stevie Wonder, and right now with Ricky Martin. The man has pipes!
The Who on in 25 minutes!
Thw Who in the 1970s were at their zenith in my opinion. I hope tonight's 1977 ocncert has them doing "Magic Bus" "Tommy" and "Pinball Wizard". 20 minutes to go - on PBS-E, folks!
Substitute! Keith Moon is playing. His second last concert, ever. He's working really hard, but the microphone isn't doing justice - the bass, guitar, and vocals are drowing out the drums on my stereo. They're doing selections from "Who's Next" I think.

This concert was included in the doc "The Kids are alright" but never before seen in its entirety. There's a lot of great music ahead.
I think the Who are doing all their greatest hits - Pinball Wizard, Summertime blues, Shakin' All Over, Who Are You, Won't Get Fooled Again, and so on... great to see Keith Moon again.
I'm listening (and watching) Bill Maher on HBO - great stuff!

The latest Sloan disc & trying to catch up on CBC Radio 3 podcasts.
Frightened Rabbits - The Twist
Do the twist in your twisting outfit,
The loose tie with the loose limp wrists,
Lift your dress enough to show me those shins.
Let your hair stick to your forehead.
Did you blush when our hips touched?
I can't tell, we are already red.
Blues by Bonnie Raitt - her Greatest Hits album. It's loud!
I recently saw Henry Rollins do some spoken word stuff in Toronto. That was great, got me listening to the HRB and Black Flag.
Right now, though, I am listening to Sepultura - The Hunt.
Recently listened to Chad VanGaalen's surreal new album Soft Airplane, then Destroyer's new Trouble in Dreams. Great, now I have to go and get their eleventy-two other records.
Now playing Matt Mays' semi-recent When the Angels Make Contact. Sounds like a bit of a concept album. The best concept albums tend to throw the concept overboard after a few songs or so, but in any event I like the musical side of it so far.
Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal
Oh Catchfire, great call!
