It shames me to say it, but there was no Wino Wednesday last week. Can you believe it? I don’t really have an excuse for my behavior — or, I suppose, lack of behavior — but I wanted to make up for it right off the bat this week and get back on the winning track with some live Spirit Caravan. As we come ever closer to a full year of Wino Wednesdays, it seems only right to make up for the lost time.
They’re not HD (I don’t think anything was a decade ago except rich people’s lives), but below you’ll find four clips of the trio Spirit Caravan — Wino on guitar/vocals, Dave Sherman (Earthride) on bass and Gary Isom (everybody) on drums — killing it live in North Carolina. This show was filmed about a month before the band called it quits following the release of their So Mortal Be single, and it’s among the latest into their tenure that I’ve seen. I don’t know what the situation was like in the band at this point, but the songs still sound awesome.
For a bonus, they even start the third part with a take on “Mourning” from The Obsessed‘s The Church Within, and while I’m not going to advocate for watching it out of order and missing out on the full 20 minutes, that’s pretty badass. However you approach it, hope you dig and as always, have a happy Wino Wednesday:
