Sister Rosetta Tharpe Documentary On Youtube

This morning I stumbled upon a BBC documentary about gospel singer and guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe.  It looks like the thing is posted on Youtube, but I’m wondering if it’s somehow available as a DVD.  She’s someone I’ve been wanting to learn more about for some time, so I’m pretty excited.  The documentary is part of privatefender‘s channel – there’s quite a bit of interesting stuff up there.  Most of the documentary is posted to Youtube, although it appears the end or final section is missing.

Here’s the first section of the Rosetta Tharpe doc.  And here, too, is a piece on Tharpe’s influence on Elvis.

Keith Levene Is Too Cool For School

We are learning this in guitar. I will defeat this m-fing song if it kills me. I hate that Keith Levene looks so nonchalant as he plays the guitar part. Grr.

This is a song I am learning right now.  It is insane, but also very fun.  Enjoy!

Really good quality concert video of Warpaint at the Rock Werchter 2011.  From what I can tell, it’s their entire performance.  Here’s the first song.

NPR Tiny Desk Concert With Lower Dens

Ah, youtube, what would I do without you?  Or you, NPR?

Anyway, here’s a lovely Tiny Desk Concert featuring our next interviewee, Jana Hunter, playing with her band Lower Dens.  They don’t play “A Dog’s Dick,” but they do play the equally dirty-sounding “Two Cocks…” as well as the beautiful “I Get Nervous,” another song that makes it into my personal playlists more than is probably healthy.

Nina Canal Talks 70s NY And Her First Telecaster

I have had some requests to interview Nina Canal of Ut, so I am going to try to do that.  But until then, here is a cool interview over on the Youtubes with Canal and Robin Crutchfield.  She talks about the 70s New York art scene and getting her first guitar.
