Haim, Glastonbury, Somerset, Bootleg, Download

HAIM are a band of sisters (plus a drummer that is not related) hailing from Los Angeles. These gals no how to rock and they churn out an interesting mix of folk and R&B. I've been listening to them and Guards back to back, their sounds are very complimentary.

Haim, Sisters, Band, Danielle, Alana, EsteBabes that like Batman rule.

The sisters, Este, Danielle, and Alana are all gorgeous. Like, serious friggin' babes. But that is but a side note to the music they craft. Danielle actually lends a guitar to Julian Casablancas' band and she also does her own, acoustic folk type deal. These gals ought ot be on your radar, they're doing some cool stuff.

This image is awesome, couldn't find an author!

I've had some requests for recent Iron & Wine sets but haven't had much luck finding any. However, this set is a real treat for anyone into the acoustic stylings of Sam Beam.

You have to love how Sam handles these solo shows. The guy makes mistakes but the way he rolls with the punches is admirable, personable, and makes for a unique experience.

This show lands on the 2 year anniversary of the deadly shooting at Northern Illinois University, my alma mater. This concert took place in Wheaton, which is pretty close to NIU, and before the last track Sam throws out a dedication to the students before going into a haunting rendition of "Dead Man's Will."

My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Americanarama, Riverbend, Ohio

Yet another AmericanramA set by our Southern gentlemen, My Morning Jacket. This one comes from the Cin City stop of the AmericanramA tour and is my favorite recording of these shows to date. Primarily, the George Harrison cover of "Isn't It a Pity" that sees Wilco joining them on stage...Jeff Tweedy grabs the mic for a while (much like how they were doing this song last Summer)...and did I mention that it's just after a near 12 minute "Steam Engine" - rock and f*cking roll folks.

Golden Smog, First Avenue, Jeff Tweedy

Golden Smog, the "super group" that consists of members from Soul Asylum, The Replacements, Wilco, The Jayhawks, Run Westy Run, The Honeydogs and Big Star. They were sort of an oddity, mixing comedy, songs from every individual group, and some bitching covers (Neil Young's "Revolution Blues" is below).

My Morning Jacket Americanarama Atlanta Bob Dylan Wilco Bob Weir

And the My Morning Jacket AmericanaramA Atlanta set is here! Don't forget to grab the Wilco set from the same show.

Just like the Wilco set, Bob Weir heads out to give the boys a hand on "I Know You Rider" and if you listen throughout the entire set there are stylistic changes in the way quite a few parts on quite a few songs are played. Pretty cool to see the change up and like how this fest seems to be taking on a Grateful Dead vibe, hopefully that feeling sticks around now that Bob Weir has completed his run.

So who has been to any of these? What are your thoughts?
