The Clash – Police On My Back (Live)



The Cure – Pictures of You (Live) – Houston, Texas

Last night I saw The Cure in concert at the Toyota Center, Houston, Texas. This is only my second time seeing the band, the first time was in Orlando in 1996. The show was amazing and they sounded perfect. Seriously, it was like listening to a really, really loud CD. The modest-sized crowd was stoked throughout the evening as Robert Smith et al. performing a blistering 3+ hour, 33 song set that including three encores. Anyhow, I decided to personally record and now blog one of my all-time favorite The Cure songs, “Pictures of You”. I didn’t record the first few seconds of the song, but was able to record almost the entire piece. Here it is…..enjoy:

Dixie Chicks Win 5 Grammys: Wing-Nuts Will Explode

The Dixie Chicks won five Grammys at the 49th annual honors, including album of the year for “Taking the Long Way,” song of the year (a songwriter’s award) and record of the year for “Not Ready to Make Nice”.

Prediction: The Wing-Nuts will be in full blown fake outrage tomorrow with their usual “liberal bias”, “anti-American”, etc., rhetoric. Nonetheless, the Dixie Chicks are a great group and fully deserve their awards.

Song of the Day (Counting Crows, ‘Holiday in Spain’)

Song of the Day (Evaline, ‘Postpartum Modesty’)

I saw this band open up for Placebo in Phoenix last fall. They were amazing and LOUD. I was hooked immediately.
