The War On Drugs played a “secret” tour warm up show under the name “Dead Greg” on Friday night for just about 200 people at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. It was awesome. They also got a little help from their friend, Kurt Vile, who played back-up guitar on several songs.
It was a pretty perfect Friday night that made me appreciate the city I live in and the musicians who live here. - Philadelphia, PA - 09/12/2014
Big record find from a couple months ago at a flea market: The Greatest Country Music Recordings of All Time by the Franklin Mint; a 50-box, 100-LP set with extensive liner notes. Goes from the earliest recordings through the early 80s.
Best of all, it didn’t break my rule of only buying $2 records. Got the whole set for $100. Heckuva deal!
Found someone who annotated some of the details if you’re interested:
I also snapped this photograph of Nels Cline after the shoot, typing in the song titles into my iPhone. Super cool dude. Incredible guitarist. Definitely the first “guitar legend” to ever be featured on Out Of Town Films. - Philadelphia, PA - 05/02/2014
