Saturday Matinee – Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Roomful Of Blues

Saturday, 5 January 2013

Grace Potter and The Nocturnals performing “Treat Me Right” at the 8×10 in Baltimore, MD on September, 14 2006. They pretty much nailed the Big Brother & The Holding Company sound.

So here is Janis Joplin with BB & The HC  “Summmertime / I need a man to Love” at the Holllywood Palace Oct. 26 1968.

Roomful of Blues is a great band to see live. Here they are in 2010 with Big Joe Turner‘s “Boogie Woogie Country Girl.”

That’s it for today. Have a great weekend folks.

Saturday Matinee – Reptilicus, Rob, Roches & James Gurley

Saturday, 26 December 2009


The Day after Christmas.  Quick! What’s the first word that comes to mind? “Reptilicus! An annihilating mastodon immune to all known weapons of warfare!”


Where’s Rob? Simple premise, funny result, and the ending makes it all worthwhile. [Found here.]

Cbullitt sent an email link to The Roches’ version of “The Hallelujah Chorus.”  It reminded me of the first Roches’ song I ever heard, “Mr. Sellack.”

Here’s some serious retroness from 1967. From the Utoobage:

Janis Joplin with Big Brother & The Holding company perform live on San Francisco TV program called “POW” that had Rolfe Petersen as the host on KPIX.

Big Brother & The Holding Company’s guitarist James Gurley recently passed away at the age of 69.
