Flashback to more than 10 years ago, you could’ve caught me singing “L.E.S Artistes” by Santigold on repeat on my iPod — but that song came to life recently at The Fillmore Silver Spring. Santigold: 10 Years Golder Tour featured the full self-titled debut album for an eager crowd, ready to soak up the nostalgia feels of her album and other songs too.

I first saw Jethro Tull on the Aqualung Tour at Civic Center in Roanoke, Virginia, on April 18, 1971. I most recently saw Ian Anderson and company at MGM National Harbor when they visited to celebrate 50 years of the band.

As part of the first wave of Southern rock, Little Feat, which, ironically, formed in Los Angeles, made all-time classic music in the early ’70s. They blended rock and blues, country and R&B, blues and folk, jazz, gospel, and soul, all with a high level of skill and a jam band sensibility. And their talents were still evident in a very good show at the Warner Theatre recently.

And Lizzy is also co-founder of Neon Gold Records, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last weekend at the Knockdown Center in Queens, New York City, with a showcase dubbed Neon Gold X. LPX performed there too, and Parklife DC caught her performance along with Broods and Marina (formerly Marina and the Diamonds).
