Last Waltz Tribute Concert

Well if you are going to play tribute to something this is one great way to do it.

In San Fran on Saturday night a group of mostly indie-rock artists and their friends all took the stage at the Warfield Theatre for a three and a half hour tribute to the Band's swan song, The Last Waltz. It had originally taken place on Thanksgiving, 1976 also in San Francisco. They billed it as "The Complete Last Waltz" and the night featured all 41 songs performed at the original concert, complete with special guests. For example Nels Cline from Wilco played the role of Eric Clapton. Scott McMicken from Dr. Dog played Bob Dylan, Marco Benevento was Dr. John and Eric Johnson did his best Van Morrison.

All and all it sounded like it was a fun show and a cool way for these artists to pay tribute to some of their heroes.
