Jamie Lidell Live, June 18, 2010 @ The Independent, San Francisco recap/audio

I thought I was getting two Jamie Lidell shows for the price of one yesterday, but I got stuck in traffic on 101 and missed the 6:00 show at Amoeba Records. By the time I got there, the band was packed up and waiting outside the store for their ride. On the bright side, I was in the City for the show at The Independent early and I got to say ‘hey’ to JAMIE LIDELL in front of Amoeba Records. (!!)

His show at the Independent was an hour and a half of happy, funky, satisfaction. He looks and sounds healthy and at the very top of his game. He says he is in love right now. That may explain why he seems so…buoyant.

I had a blast at the show. More fun than I’ve had in a while. I reinforced my decision to be sure to never miss a Jamie Lidell show when he comes to town. He’s just phenomenal.

Bonus: The recording came out pretty good!

Here are some samples:

Taylor Hicks sits in with George Porter 04-11-08

A million thanks to luvtaylorhicks who found these vids and posted them over at the Boogie Board! Taylor Hicks sat in with PBS the other night, and somebody posted it on youtube. (Thanks, cashbham.)

Too bad the songs are broken up, but it’s ok — at last there is a little T around here!

Part 1…groovy

Part 2…here come the vocals I’ve been missing….

Part 3…and the big finish…

(See the rest of cashbham’s vids for the other song.)

lyrics of the day

When life hits you like a truck you gotta rise up.
