Better live

Tom Morello did this song today live, but with a lot more passion.

Dar Williams did this song:

Tom did this song, pretty much the same way as in this video:

Steve Earle did Christmas in Washington and a couple of others. Not bad, but he was not on fire. Allison Moorer sang pretty. That's damning with faint praise, but pretty much it -- no passion, no energy, just really pretty singing. Or as Tom might say, "it's got no soul."

Tomorrow I get to see Rodney Crowell (and I have a funny feeling Emmylou might come out from behind the scenes and join him on the stage for a song or two), and of course there's Emmylou's set at the end. -- Badtux the Music Penguin
