You dont need a weatherman

You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Friday Wrap-up 10/24/14

Interesting week here at the office, with new shows in process and lots of work accompanied by heavy rains for the last few days. This makes for very wet trails up and down the hills and a new chill in the house to get used to. Every day the heat is left off is another bunch of oil/dollars/climate change addition saved, but it does make for chill mornings.

Here's a new Fieldwire video playlist, the first in quite a while. It features new music from the Who, Sleater-Kinney, Daniel Lanois, a selection of various music from around the world, a strange BBC special with Siouxsie & The Banshees while Robert Smith of the Cure was in the group, a U.S. Maple documentary, and to round things out a recent live Merzbow set on Boiler Room. Ah, variety!



Look for a new music playlist as well as a streaming set later in the weekend, and updates on content and layout on the home site soon.

Pretty as you feel

Mid-week drop of this excellent reminder - you're only pretty as you feel!



What if age is just a mind set?

I Feel Pretty!



Hope your week is going well, back with more soon here.

Fieldwire Session Tonight!

We're in the midst of weird, warm and rainy weather, setting the mood for another session with wet leaves, southernly winds, and hissing street sounds. If local, join us for a great night of music with Dredd Foole, Ruth Garbus, Scotty Tabachnick and Passerine.

Here's a live video of Ruth from a couple of years ago singing a song that's now on her recent EP.



Here's a brief interview with Dredd Foole:



And here's a rare solo appearance by Scotty Tabachnick at the original Festival of Endless Gratitude:



Just to keep the vibe alive, here's the Bee Gees doing a track from Odessa live in '74"
