Good Morning, Music Lovers! Today we begin a Fillmore celebration that runs through July 4. Bill Graham closed the Fillmore East on June 27, 1971 and The Fillmore West on July 4, 1971. It was a legendary venue for so many great bands that it cannot be ignored.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Lucinda Williams Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, Recorded Live November 20-22, 2003 NEW!
“I’d rather play a few nights at The Fillmore than one night in an arena.” We kick off this celebration with Lucinda Williams live at the Fillmore West.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sister Kate by Kate Taylor
We take a short break in the Fillmore celebration to air our Album of The Week. We’re winding down on this selection, folks. Our final airing will be Saturday.
7:00 p.m. The Byrds Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, Recorded Live February 7-8, 1969 NEW!
The notorious Byrd brothers remain one of our Mermaid Lounge favorites, and we have a never-before-heard concert by The Byrds live at the Fillmore West today.
This is the way we here in The Mermaid Lounge celebrate July 4. Screw the flag-waving and the Star Spangled Banner. Tune us in and celebrate along with us. This is just the beginning of a great music weekend.
