Been have some major computer issues over here at the home office of HFTB so that's why there has been a lack of posts over the last few days. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out what the hell is wrong with my computer soon - it's frustrating the hell out of me.

So while I've been dealing with that their have been some posts I figured I'd link to in the meantime...

Live Music Blog's on Phish's Live Download Series & Late Night Langerado Shows

Brooklyn Vegan's got info on a pontential 'surprise' Strokes show happening at the Hammerstein on January 17th and Belle & Sebastian/New Pornographers Tour Dates is reporting on this interesting show going on in San Fran this weekend....

The Fillmore Acid Test at 40
As previously reported, this weekend the Fillmore in San Francisco will host an event to mark the birthday of celebrated concert promoter Bill Graham. Graham, who died in a helicopter crash on October 25, 1991, would have turned 75 years old this year. On Saturday, Mickey Hart, the Neville Brothers and Jackson Browne are all confirmed to participate at a show which will benefit the Bill Graham Foundation. However, a second performance has been added which, in addition, will mark the 40th Anniversary of the Merry Pranksters’ Fillmore Acid Test. Slated to appear at the Sunday night show will be Tea Leaf Green, Samantha Stollenwerck and Eric McFadden along with members of ALO, Hot Buttered Rum and The Ritual. One can anticipate that some Pranksters will be on hand as well.

Sounds great - if I lived in the Bay area I'd most definitely be hitting that up.

Slack LaLane might have topped all those with the potential Ashlee Simpson sextape (nice work Ace!)

And finally some music to get the weekend started right. As I had the 'Ol IPod on shuffle earlier today Phish's version of 'Sea & Sand' from their recentely released '95 NYE show came on - which Page plays solo acoustic and it's utterly amazing. Well that got me to thinking about The Who when I stubbled across this show on Dimedozen....

The Who - 1969-10-19 - Electric Factory - Philadelphia, PA - Early Show

I've seen them twice - once on the Quadrophenia tour and then doing more of a greatest hits type show, though they dug pretty deep into their catalog - and they were amazing.
