R.E.M. performed some of their rawest, most urgent music from their long, storied career at the Olympia in Dublin, thanks to NPR, you can listen to the two disk set (39 songs) in it’s entirety here. It is amazing.
I found this great video someone put together with clips from an episode of The Adventures of Pete and Pete entitled “When Petes Collide” to an amazing 6ths song. The song was featured in the show in an episode entitled “Das Bus.”
The 6ths are Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields having other people sing songs he writes. In this case, that’s Dean Wareham of Luna.
Today, I happened by my old haunt, the 91.9 studio and ran into rock director Hot Donna, who isn’t actually named Donna but is actually hot. Regardless, she told me that The Wildcat is giving away tickets to see The Pogues in Kansas City at the Midland by AMC next week. I had no idea…guess I need to pay more attention to stuff like that.
Just dropping in to say “hi” real quick but before I left, I wanted to remind all of you to live every day like it’s Shark Week.
This is your brain on Hogs.
