Joe Pug covers The Low Anthem, Tom Waits [Backstage and Bootleg]

by oz on November 12, 2010

Joe Pug ended his $10 tour in Austin, TX at The Cactus Cafe on November 6th. Luckily, Aaron Wevodau was in attendance and recorded the show because it’s fantastic. Here are a few song selections, but head over here to hear/download the entire set. “Not So Sure” has become one of my favorite tracks of the year.

Joe Pug – Unsophisticated Heart

Joe Pug – Not So Sure

Joe Pug – Hymn 101

Joe Pug – T0 Ohio (Low Anthem cover)

Joe also posted a video of a backstage rehearsal of Tom Waits’ “Old Shoes” with Vandaveer.

Not the first time he’s covered Tom Waits. Here’s another video of Joe Pug doing “Ol’ 55.”

“Not So Sure”

Close to the “depressing” side, but I Like (button). 🙂

It might be a far stretch, it might not but have you given Daniel Lanois’ group, Black Dub, a spin yet? Trixie Whitley lends her vocals and it is amazing. Check out the NPR tiny desk concert; http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=131075032

When I saw him a month or so ago they ended the show with “Old Shoes.” It was pretty awesome, him and Vandaveer are great together.
