The Ledge #419: Live Albums, Vol. 2
Part one of The Ledge Live Albums series featured my picks (with a little agreement from my friends). Tonight's belongs to those who responded to a Facebook post from last month (plus a couple of emails and tweets). It's quite a bit fun, starting with a lengthy set of Americana acts before weaving through some indie rock before culminating with some heavier rock and legendary punk.
I hope everybody enjoys the show as much as I did. It really was a perfect respite from the hysteria of these troubled times. And I do have to give a special thanks to each and every person who suggested a record or song. I'm only sorry that I couldn't play everything suggested.
After listening, please go purchase those tracks you enjoy! Touring artists are having an especially tough time these days with the cancellation of SXSW and the closings of most venues. You can find this show at almost any podcast site, including iTunes and Stitcher...or
