Videos of the Day – week of 9/30

9/30 – in case you missed their “Here Comes The Night Time” NBC special after SNL Saturday, here’s the whole Arcade Fire-tastic thing!

10/1 – great show tonight at The Jefferson with Bill Callahan in town!  Here he is doing a song from his new album in a slighty different setting than the typical recording studio/radio station setup…

10/2 – RJD2 has a new album coming Tuesday (10/8)…here’s a cool new track!

10/3 – by now, you’ve probably heard Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”…here’s the acoustic duo version…can’t blame Aloe Blacc for trying to let people know it’s HIM who is singing words HE wrote on the track!

10/4 – Meat Puppets are in Cville Sunday at The Southern!  And listen for them in the Corner Lounge that afternoon too…here’s something from their 2009 album –

a funny one from their pre-guesting-with-Nirvana-on-MTV-Unplugged days…

a cool live one from the legendary Amoeba Records…

and here they are on Conan back in the NBC days (1994)…
