Dead Show dated July 3, 1976 but cannot find any listing of that show. What Gives?
Ziph, Great picks. I've been watching some of their other vids. These guys are really really good. Travis is awesome, Annie too, they freakin' nailed that High Time.
Wow, here it is again, already. The 2nd iteration of the DeadCoversProject. Welcome and hello. I'm ziphler, a completely delusional, thus official, DCP editorialist, music critic, journalist, and otherwise complete nuisance. And this is the first edition of this year's ziph's picks, probably the bane of DCP's existence.
It looks so far as if there's been about 130 entries in the project since sometime in December. Of course, who knows what the ground rules are this year? Are we looking at all entries since time began or is it just entries since the event officially closed March 1, 2012, OR is it since DCP announced this year's event? Is it based on when a video is tagged "DeadCoversProject" or when it was uploaded? Beats me and I'm happy with the obscurity for now since rules can all be circumvented.
Anyhoo, I couldn't help but to notice a major contender right off the bat. They, it, them, him is called the volunteer string band and have jumped in with a plethora of entries. What sets VSB apart from some of the other early and aggressive "more entries is better" players is some serious musical talent. VSB seems to have a completely fluid membership and, in the case of lovelight, actually has no string players at all, instead sporting a brass band. So, sparing you anymore blather, here are the first two

freakin well done!
Oh and PS: like she says, you don't enter the project by posting videos in this forum. Every video in ziph's picks has already been officially attached to the project by TAGGING the video in YouTube with this exact one word: DeadCoversProject - (I know it looks like three words but its not).
TAG IT: DeadCoversProject
we love seeing them here, but make sure you do the YouTube/tagging thing as well if you want to be sure the folks working on the Project see it. Thanks and keep on covering!
Please let us seat you upfront at Kenny's Castaways the legendary Greenwich Village club that for 40+ years introduced many of todays most incredible musicians to the world. Sadly Kenny's was closed on 10/1/12, this was our last regular Wednesday night gig during Kenny's final week and was a very emotional night for all present. While you can't show us love in the tip jar,if you like us we would deeply appreciate a thumbs up or a kind comment! And remember to always tip your bartenders and waitresses!!
