R.E.M. Plays SXSW
The SXSW Conference seems to be coming up on my radar more this year than it ever has in the past. Came up again yesterday when R.E.M. did a show at Stubbs as a part of the conference, which was broadcast and archived on NPR.
What's impressive about this show is the range of their music catalog they touched. As a fan from the "early" days I was pleased to hear tunes from Reckoning (Second Guessing), Fables of the Reconstruction (Auctioneer), Life's Rich Pageant (Fall on Me). Looking forward to hearing the new stuff from Accelerate when I can get my hands on it.
Will have to see if I can swing seeing R.E.M. play in Boston this summer.
