last weekend in live music: brothers & sisters, joe ely
I totally failed to blog about last Sunday's Waterloo Records 25th Anniversary party. Oops. It's been too long for a real review, but suffice it to say that it was a gorgeous day full of great music.
Brothers & Sisters from afar. We were not willing to leave the shade. Their Neil Young-as-a-neuftet sound is much better live than recorded.
Lubbock's incomparable Joe Ely is as amazing as ever, and Joel Guzman can shred. On the accordion. I know.
All in all a great show on a perfect day to be outside. I have some video of Ely playing "All Just to Get To You"; maybe I'll get that posted later. He also did an incredible Townes Van Zandt cover, evoking the ghost of Austin's greatest songwriter who lived just over the hill from Waterloo in Clarksville. Amazing.
