Published Jul 22, 2009As always, Exclaim! has been sending our brave contributors out into the smoggy summer heat to check out the best of live shows from across the country.
For a short sampling of what they came back with, click here to check out our review of Steve Earle, the Dead Weather and more at Ottawa Bluesfest, or here for a Bob Dylan concert in Syracuse, N.Y. We've also reviewed some fine performances by everyone's favourite Spencer Krug side-project, Sunset Rubdown, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Flying Lotus, Grouper and recent Exclaim! cover stars Japandroids.
On top of that, check out write-ups on death-metal(ish) tour Summer Slaughter and get a rare glimpse into Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble.
