uncle tupelo live in st louis, 8.15.90

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, September 17th, 2013


top of the evening, y’all! funny thing about “y’all” after spending the past ten years in the south, i find myself saying it quite often, but it really never sounds right coming out of my mouth, but there is that whole “fitting in” thing. so, most of the time i resort to “you guys” which was part of chicagoan vernacular, and sounds natural. either way, you dont care about that shit. i have posted a lot of uncle tupelo shows over the past 8 years, but have never posted or heard this one. this was a benefit show for gary morris, not too sure who he is, and also this was was the farewell show for chicken truck????? anyone ever hear of them? apparently chicken trucks portion of the show was broadcast on kdhx in st louis. this show took place at off broadway in st louis…

all wrapped up – aka in rar format

dawn mccarthy and bonnie prince billy “omaha” and will oldham live on kslc fm

Posted by gregor on Friday, September 13th, 2013


totally spaced on this oldham record, what the brothers sang. someone mentioned it couple weeks ago, and quickly went in one ear and out the other. it is with dawn mccarthy, who i dont know anything about, but just judging by the video, below, it sounds lovely. it is after all an everly brothers cover record, so the chances of awesomeness are pretty high. but it via amazon

here he is performing on 10.10.98 in mcminnville, or, kslc fm.

1. intro
2. death to everyone
3. nomadic revery
4. a minor place
5. song for a new breed

explosions in the sky live at first ave, 3.29.07

Posted by gregor on Monday, July 29th, 2013


sup, peoples? so.. being back in the office 8-5 game is turning out to be kind of tough. firstly is 8-5 normal? i always thought it was 9-5 esp when you really dont take a lunch. eh, whatever, i dig the job thus far, and who am i to complain? still, being in an office for 9 hours a day is rough especially not having to do so for 2+ years. prob going to be posting a bit more in the future, but gonna change up the style by posting mostly just the song/pics/vital info. lets be honest, no one really cares about my “words” and “sentences.” in the meantime, this is just what the title says.

1. intro
2. welcome, ghosts
3. with tired eyes
4. yasmin the light
5. the only moment we were alone

elliott smith live in stockholm, 6.2.98

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, June 4th, 2013


oh, happy tuesday, peoples! so t-minus about 65 hours i, and the family, will be on the road to chicago. back home for the first time in two years. sucks we only make it back every two years, but it is what it is, i suppose. either way, el famous burrito, white castle, italian beefs, and the good beer i cant find here in louisiana will be in my stomach, soon… very soon. so here we have a great elliott show, probably one of the better ones i have heard, but i am no expert in terms of his shows. this was my favorite time period from him which could lead me to think its a damn fine show. much love to the original taper, and you can find the lossless version here.

1. angeles
2. division day
3. clementine
4. alameda
5. between the bars
6. pictures of me
7. waltz #2
8. rose parade

vic chesnutt live at cats cradle, 11.29.95

Posted by gregor on Saturday, May 25th, 2013


happy memorial day weekend, americans! to everyone else, hey its still the weekend, right? either way, i have been so damn busy with work the past few weeks, i have nary the time/energy to put forth here. kind of sad, but i guess it beats having too much time aka not having a fucking job. although, one hilarious thing i did learn yesterday was that my health insurance, that my company “provides” is going to cost me 1k a month. are you fucking kidding me? keep in mind i am going on 3 years w/o a raise, and couple that with that fact that i can in no way afford that, i am going to have to seek other insurance. anyone around here pay for their own? any advice/tips?

yesterday, after learning that news i found it necessary, not sure exactly why, to listen to mr chesnutt. so here he is at cats cradle in carborro, nc on 11.29.95. thanks mucho to the original taper.

1. isadora duncan
2. flying
3. gepetto
4. smiley punk rocker
5. stupid preoccupations
