In what would be her final public live performance, Janis Joplin packed Cambridge’s Harvard Stadium to the brim and beyond for a show that goes down as one of Boston’s most famous live music moments.
According to an article on Harvard.edu about one of the photographers at the show, only about 10,000 people were allowed inside the stadium but the crowd of people that gathered around the stadium to get a glimpse of the show reached as high as about 40,000. Many fans even climbed the walls of the stadium to get inside!
"Live At Japan," a free download of a 26-minute live performance by the Nashville, TN band. You can also download their free debut EP, "Boundary Conditions," for free, but "Live At Japan" is where it's at.

I first found out about these cats when their song "40 Day Dream" was among iTunes's free songs of the week in either late 2009 or early 2010. Something about this new age band of gypsies/hippies struck a chord with me, and I fell in love with them instantly. Not long afterwards, I bought their debut album, 'Up from Below', which stands as my favorite of their releases so far. And I bought 'Here' the day it was released.
The band's latest release, their self-titled third LP, is a little slower and dreamier than their previous two albums. 'Here' was slower and dreamier than 'Up from Below', and the last two albums were recorded around the same time, so I think this move to slower, more introspective songs was deliberate. It's not as upbeat as their previous two records, but it doesn't have to be. I mean, life's not always sunshine and rainbows, so why should our music?
If you're not familiar with Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, get familiar. They're worth it.
7/31/74 Dave's Dos (ha,ha) Sounding extra dynamite today - seriously maniacal at moments, don't you know. (yay, I spelled it right!) nevermind ...
7/31/35 three tracks from the "Complete Billie Holiday"
7/31/44 Bunk Johnson 1944 (2nd masters)
7/31/74 The remainder.
Is tomorrow really happening? As Etta James would say, "at last".
