Coupl’a Quickies in a Slow News Cycle

As far as I know, JamBase hasn’t cornered the worldwide market on posting straight press releases. So let’s take a look at a couple from the inbox today…

The North Mississippi Allstars are set to release their first live concert DVD on June 26th — the new disc will be called Keep On Marchin’:

Six Hi-Definition cameras beautifully capture the November 11, 2005 performance at the Higher Ground. The show was one of many the band did in support of their Grammy-nominated sixth record, “Electric Blue Watermelon.”

And the good people behind Nugs.net are releasing Rock the Earth, a benefit album to support environmental conversation in these United States:

Nugs.net’s artist partners donated the recordings for this compilation, including an exclusive release from Jack Johnson. Other artists contributing to the benefit compilation include Dave Matthews Band, Grateful Dead, Phish, Widespread Panic, The String Cheese Incident, The Disco Biscuits, The Radiators, Trey Anastasio, Gov’t Mule, STS9, Zero, Umphrey’s McGee, moe., and ALO.

Read on for a full tracklist for that cool-lookin’ Nugs.net hippie compilation…

The B List: It’s Saturday Night

Last week’s edition of The B List looked at some amazing performances from David Letterman’s late-night NBC and CBS shows.

But Saturday Night Live is another late-night television show that features a musical performer each week, and there’s plenty of material to pillage for this here blog. Over the past three decades, SNL has produced 423 episodes, providing us a ton of incredible moments through the years. Most compliations from SNL just show the top performances from the early days and the recent days, fully ignoring the shows that weren’t produced by Lorne Michaels.

We won’t ignore the No-Lorne years. We make you that promise. So this week’s B List presents 10 great SNL music performances from 1978-1986. Read on for some classic clips from Queen, The Clash, The Band, James Brown and many more…
