Sorry for the downtime guys. Had to concentrate all my focus for a while there, but I'm back.

This concert KICKS A*S. Billy and the boys (and gal) took a break from their 100% maniac electric concerts to do a tour that featured both acoustic and electric instruments. This was the big tour after their legendary Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album. Dig it guys.

Jim James, Forecastle Fest, Let It Be, Concert, Bootleg

Jim James took a little break from AmericanaramA to play Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY and boy o boy, it sounds like he had a good time playing in his own backyard. He played the entirety of his solo debut LP Regions of Light and Sound of God as well as some extras, culminating in a fantastic version of The Beatles "Let It Be." Yes, you read that correctly - listen to it below.

Forecastle Festival is becoming one of the premier North American music/art/activism festivals to attend. The last few years they've experienced tremendous growth and have solidified their name on the "Most Kick A*s Festivals" list.

**Thank you bporter for a job well done**

Not much to say on this one other than "holy f*cker." Jim James, John Oates, Carl Broemel, Preservation Jazz Hall Band, Brittany Howard, Bill Idol, R. Kelly...Madness on that stage folks, just madness. Oh yeah, and the dude from Police Academy (Michael Winslow) opens this set up with a version of the "Star Spangled Banner" - just excellent.

This is the weekend party soundtrack folks, have a good one.
