There are just shit-tons of great, mind-blowing performances on Youtube.
I’d love to see more, and am interested in hearing why they’re so special, so I’ll post a few, and you can post some back, and everybody will enjoy it right?
Two Swedish Girls Playing a Fleet Foxes song -
I really like Fleet Foxes, but couldn’t find any worthwhile live cuts… that is until a I found this. Goddamn these girls are good.
Ween - The Final Alarm (on public access)
One of my favorite bands, though they tend to polarize people, they are a great live act, and nobody can deny that. This video, shot for public access in the early nineties presumably on Halloween, shows exactly why that is. The sound quality isn’t great, but it’s good enough to get this spectacular performance across. Also it’s one of the only songs Claude Coleman sings.
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (in an elevator)
You can’t beat improvising a snare drum by having a dude rip pages out of a magazine. This video is part of the excellent “Take Away Shows” series. http://www.blogotheque.net/-Concerts-a-emporter-?lang=en <---- more here.
That’s enough for now. I have so many more, but won’t weigh the thread down with em’.
