The Felice Brothers Live in Oxford, MS

The brothers tore it up yet again. They sound much more cohesive lately as Farley is really contributing perfectly with his washboard, fiddle, and pots and pans. Simon's passion, Ian and Jimmy's husky vocals, and Christmas's social anxiety made for quite a show. Videos of "Saved" and "X-Mas song (Mercy)" are below.

I talked to Dan, the manager of The Felice Brothers, and he expects a new album to be released by March!!


1929 (new)
Murder by Mistletoe
Whiskey in my Whiskey
Christmas Song (Mercy)
Helen Fry
Ruby Mae
Where'd You Get Your Liquor
Ambulance Man (Coney Island) (new)
Chicken Wire (new)
GD You, Jim
Love Me Tenderly
Saved (new)
Run, Chicken, Run (new)
Don't Wake the Scarecrow
Frankie's Gun
Penn Station (new)
Two Hands (with members of Deer Tick)(Townes Van Zandt cover)

Deer Tick blew me away also. I purchased their disc "War Elephant" at the show and have been blasting it since. I would highly recommend purchasing it if you like alt-country/folky tunes like The Felice Brothers and Langhorne Slim.

Drive By Truckers: Live in Oxford, MS at the Lyric

Another great DBT show. An obvious highlight was "Rockin In the Free World." The crowd was large and very into the show. You gotta love Trucker fans. DBT played a good bit of obscure songs, which I enjoyed, but I could have used a couple more Dirty South tunes. I really wanted to hear "Two Daughters and a Beautiful Wife," from Brighter but oh well. Video of "Rockin in the Free World" in Oxford below, and also download "Rockin' In the Free World" played on 9/14/08 HERE.

1. Ghost to Most
2. Demonic Possession
3. Righteous Path
4. Carl Perkins' Cadillac
5. Sinkhole
6. Love Like This
7. Road Cases (full story)
8. Three Dimes Down
9. Steve McQueen
10. Sounds Better in a Song
11. The Living Bubba
12. Women Without Whiskey
13. Home Field Advantage
14. Hell No I Ain't Happy
15. Gravity's Gone
16. Lookout Mountain


17. World of Hurt
18. Zip City
19. Rockin' in the Free World (with Don Chambers )
20. People Who Died (with Craig on guitar and Don Chambers)

"Rockin in the Free World" Live in Oxford, MS

Don Chambers and Goat opened for the Truckers and was very impressive. They reminded me of Tom Waits with a little alt-country dashed in. The ladder drum was undoubtedly the highlight, as was the random gorilla that appeared on stage with Patterson Hood.
