The first I intro is Ivan Neville, one of New Orleans' best -- it's $25 a day, but you can go back and rewatch everything later

If you buy a ticket (hey, I did! Gotta support live music!) when you get to the show page, click on "Experience," one of the blue buttons across the top, then scroll down to "Martin Stage" -- I've been watching all afternoon and it sounds great! If you look closely you can see photographer Jayne Toohey right in front of the stage snapping away. Like an Escher print -- a photograph of a photographer taking a photograph.
I also do this tomorrow, starting earlier -- as they say:
THE PHILADELPHIA FOLK FESTIVAL: THE SHOW MUST GO ON . . . LINE!
Tonight's show ends with Ben Gibbard, the main dude in "Death Cab For Cutie" -- he was a vegan, now he's a pescatarian -- and not only does he run marathons, he has been performing living concerts every day, partnering with non-profit charities in the Pacific Northwest. So yes, he walks the walk and talks the talk. Who knew the leader of Death Cab For Cutie had the heart of a folksinger?
