Stream good live music online today

WXPN in Philly is hosting their All About The Music Festival this weekend, and after torrential monsoon rains and lightning yesterday, some of the acts have been rescheduled for today -- joining a line-up that was pretty top-notch to begin with. You can stream all the sets online today (terrestrial listeners in Philly and Delaware Valley and South Jersey can tune in at 88.5), and read more about the acts on the music page. If you are around the house and looking for some good listenin' today, these acts are hard to beat:

1:50pm (all times EDT) Lotus
2:50pm Jim James of My Morning Jacket
4:00pm IV Thieves <---Formerly Nic Armstrong & The Thieves
5:10pm Alejandro Escovedo
6:25pm Amos Lee
7:40pm Brandi Carlile
9:10pm Allen Toussaint

STREAM IT HERE

And I don't know if this will be broadcast online because it is the smaller stage but:

12noon Ben Franklin Middle School Drummers with Attitude


That ROCKS. Where was that group when I was in middle school? Instead I was in the 'Anne of Green Gables' musical. Sigh.

What's wrong with the Anne of Green Gables musical? Who doesn't love Anne?

And the part that gets me is that I still remember all the lyrics to the songs:

"Every Tuesday afternoon
We take up our positions
In the rummage brigade
Of the Ladies' Aid
To to board of foreign missions
All the ladies of Avonlea
Are glad to help the heathen
To improve the lot
of the hottentot
Comes as natural to us as breathin,
As natural to us as breathin'..."

Thanks for the tip! I'm very much looking forward to hearing Escovedo and Toussaint live.

I've hit the record button here, and will be happy to send some things your way once I've sifted and sorted through the show later. If you're interested, that is.
