More Westerberg from 1993

For those of you with On Demand service on your cable provider, you should check out whether you have access to the channel. (I have Comcast On Demand and can find it by going to the On Demand menu and picking: Music > > Later With Jools).

And the reason you would be checking this out is because Paul's 1993 appearance on "Later With Jools Holland" is currently playing on this channel (through Oct. 15). Paul and the 1993 touring band (Dave Minehan, Darren Hill and Josh Freese) do 2 songs, "World Class Fad" and "Things". Paul says that this is only their second show together so that explains the lyrical misfires on "Things". Very rocking WCF!

Moshing With Paul

I found this video via JukeboxGraduate, it's from Westerberg's 1993 tour and until I watched it, I had forgotten that there was crowd-surfing and stage-diving during those shows, and a wee bit of moshing. It's pretty funny to watch and a great performance of "Left Of The Dial" to boot.

Pleased To Meet Paul Westerberg

Some good news for people who haven't won tickets for the PW "The Craft" show on Sunday: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has a package of 4 front row tickets up for auction, the package includes the opportunity to meet Paul (lucky!) and (to quote the eBay posting), "a host of other surprises…". Ooooooo! Bidding as of this post is incredibly low at $242, which works out to $60.50 per person, which is like... the bargain of the century! So get 3 friends together, pool your money and bid!

9/19/07 7:30pm ETA:
The top bid is now $630, but for front row seats and a meet and greet, I still think it's a bargain!

"His favorite color is plaid"

Fun thread on the message board detailing Paul's sartorial adventures in plaid. Check out the links below for some truly silly pictures of the plaided-up Mats and the Young Fresh Fellows goofing around on tour, from (I think) 1987. (Thanks to Cold Fingaz for the links).
