Videos of the Day – week of 7/8

7/8 – in honor of the big news today of Pearl Jam coming to JPJ 10/29!  p.s. we should have a new PJ song Thursday also!

7/9 – Wilco & My Morning Jacket are on tour with Bob Dylan this summer…check out their collaboration from the other day on Neil Young’s “Cinnamon Girl!”

and that video led me to this one, where Jim James of My Morning Jacket discusses a variety of topics at SXSW earlier this year, including Dave Grohl & teleportation!

7/10 – what a great new song from Janelle Monae!

7/11 – the new Asheville, NC band River Whyless is opening for Gregory Alan Isakov tonight at The Jefferson…here’s their brand-new video!

7/12 – and here’s the new Pearl Jam song, “Mind Your Manners!”

and since that’s just the audio of a song you’ve probably already heard by now, here’s the complete PJ Lollapalooza set from Brazil earlier this year!
