The Wood Brothers – “Shoofly Pie”

Well, summer sickness has its hold on me…I’ve been fighting it all week. Despite feeling under the weather, I made it to see some of The Wood Brothers’ show at Nectars MV last night, and I’m so glad I did! These guys are great live…they’ve got awesome energy and ridiculous talent on their respective instruments. This song, the single from their new album, is a great example of that amazing musicianship. The bassline! The slide guitar! And how about this trippy video? So fun…

Easy Star All-Stars w/ Citizen Cope – “Karma Police”

Last night I got to check out Citizen Cope at Nectars here on the island. I had never seen him before and I only knew a few of his more popular tunes so I was excited to get a better feel for the music. It was a full band show and I had heard from friends that the full band experience was a much more energetic one compared to his solo show. They were right…the energy was great…lots of hardcore fans were there, singing along to every song and getting pumped up. I enjoyed it a lot. I guess I could compare the music to a more poppy, mainstream Radiohead sound. He’s got those repetitive, out-there vocals that float along and kinda make you feel like zoning out. In a good way. The highlight of the show for me was when he encored with the Radiohead tune “Karma Police”, which he had recorded with the Easy Star All-Stars. Check it out:

Taj Mahal – “Queen Bee”

There’s something so incredible about Taj Mahal…something deep and almost magical that comes shining out from inside the nearly 70-year-old bluesman. You can hear it in his recordings, but this feeling comes across best in a live setting, and I was lucky enough to see Taj last night at Nectars here on the Vineyard. His style of Caribbean blues, the way he executes it, and his smile-inducing stage presence all add up to a very special show. And this tune was one of the highlights of the show for me:
