Here’s the video of Sleater-Kinney reuniting at Portland’s Moda Center to sing “Rockin’ in the Free World” with Pearl Jam last night.

Watch: Official Video For Bob Dylan/George Harrison “Time Passes Slowly”


Not sure how long this has been online but in any case it’s cool. Some footage and still photos, some random, some spot on. All in all a nice collage of images that play well against this great alternative version of “Time Passes Slowly” with George Harrison on lead guitar and some vocals. This version is, of course, on Another Self Portrait.

Watch & Listen: Bob Dylan at the Royal Albert Hall 2013 — Videos, Audio

Dylan at the Royal Albert Hall, November 28, 2013 via

There are some clips here that I’m not positive are from the Royal Albert Hall shows Dylan played this past week. I’ve indicated the clips that are for sure from the shows. If you can confirm the others, let me know.

UPDATE: I’m told that the clips I was uncertain about are not from Royal Albert Hall, but possibly from a Paris show. You might still enjoy them.

UPDATE: I’ve since found a clip of “All ALong the Watchtower” from the November 28 show. You can see it here.

Some of these clips have pretty good audio but sketchy video. The performance of “Forgetful Heart” in particular is excellent and the audio good — it’s just the video that doesn’t cut it.

Greeting fans at the end of the show, Nov. 28, 2013, Royal ALbert Hall:

Listen: Neil Young’s “Cinnamon Girl” From “Live at the Cellar Door”

Today Neil Young released this audio from his Live at the Cellar Door album, which will be released December 10, 2013.

It’s very cool hearing this song, which we know much better from the rock performance by Neil and Crazy Horse, done solo with only Neil’s piano playing as accompaniment. At the end of the track you can hear Neil say, “That’s the first time I ever did that one on piano.”

The Time Machine: Patti Smith Reads Poetry, Stars In Ivan Kral Film “Raven”

I came across this very cool eight minute film, “Raven,” that Ivan Kral made about Patti Smith and her band in 1975. It’s beautiful, and maybe four minutes into it Patti starts reciting her poetry.

“Raven,” from Prelinger Archives, directed by Ivan Kral with voiceover by Patti Smith.

These others have audio of Patti Smith reading her poetry.

Watch: Lauryn Hill Live at the Bowery Ballroom 2013; First Post-Prison Gig

Terrific photo via Consequence of Sound.

Lauryn Hill’s first show since she was released from prison took place November 27, 2013 at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC.

Excellent review over at Consequence of Sound.

Sound is funky on this cell phone video, but you get a sense of the scene.


“Lost One”:

Here’s a short clip in which Hill’s son raps:
