Day 256: After Hours by The Velvet Underground

25 Feb

Hello there!

For the blog today, I wanted to feature an adorable song. Even though the lyrics are a little sad (and sadly true about myself), the song is super sweet and super fantastic.

“After Hours” by The Velvet Underground is one of those weird tracks that appears at the very end of The Velvet Underground I (which I so happened to buy on vinyl today at the record store) that I always skip to. Maureen Tucker, the drummer of the band, has such an imperfect voice that it’s strangely good.

Today has been a great day, and “After Hours” is a great song.

Enjoy!

Day 254: Don’t Let The Devil by Jackie Greene

24 Feb

Hey everyone!

For today’s post, I wanted to get some blues out there (to essentially contribute to the stormy weather).

A few weeks back, me and Michael, a friend of mine, went to see Jackie Greene at WOW Hall. I had zero expectations, so I was thoroughly surprised at how great the concert was! With the bluesy-rock feel and the Hendrix-style guitar solos, I became an instant fan.

I loved how Jackie Greene used all different guitars and instruments to explore the genre he was rocking, actively getting the audience to feel the music like he does. With two acts, a fantastic arrangement of guitars, a 70s electric organ (can you say LOVE?!), and a great voice, he embodied the soul of the 70s. Impressive for such a young artist!

Anyway I had a great time at the concert (thanks Mike!) and I’m proud to say that I’m a Jackie Greene fan from now on!

Here’s an acoustic version of “Don’t Let The Devil” (which was one of my favorite songs he played). It’s really awesome and I’m glad to see this guy still rocks hard acousticly as well as full-band-ly.

Enjoy “Don’t Let The Devil” by Jackie Greene!
