Belle and Sebastian – Quirky, odd, wonderful. I suggest you check out If You’re Feeling Sinister and Dear Catastrophe Waitress.
Beautiful (off 3…6…9 Seconds of Light)
I had done up an “Under the Covers, pt3” but the internet lost it. However, I was relived when I remembered that the The Shins will have their performance for Austin City Limits televised on December 18th, along with The Flaming Lips. NOT ONLY is that awesome, get a load of the upcomming shows:
>>The Flaming Lips followed by The Shins (12/18/2004)
>>Wilco followed by Bright Eyes (1/8/2005)
>>Trey Anastasio (1/15/2005)
I’m trying to track down the Shins performace at the ACL festival last year, but they’re sneaky…
Counting Crows – Here Comes Your Man (Pixies cover done primarily on piano)
Counting Crows – Pale Blue Eyes (Velvet Underground cover, ditto about the piano)
Guster-The Boy With the Arab Strap (unless I’m gravely mistaken, a cover of Belle and Sebastian)
Jimi Hendrix and BB King – Like a Rolling Stone (Dylan)
I’ve just been informed that I’ll be attending the Bright Eyes show in Columbus. Here are a Bright Eyes and Conor solo show to celebrate.
