Wino Wednesday: Acoustic Set Live in Johnson City, Tennessee, Nov. 18, 2013

Saint Vitus‘ October tour had ended on the 25th in New Orleans, so whether Wino just stayed on the East Coast or was back to the West and then over again to play this acoustic show in Johnson City, Tennessee, I don’t really know. It seems to have been somebody’s birthday or some other such occasion, held at The HideAway, and also a stop on the Samothrace tour — local sludgers Navajo Witch played as well — so a more than solid bill one way or another. Wino played a 42-minute set to an increasingly tanked crowd, as you can hear in the sundry whooping and hollering in the clip below, and along with covering the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Motörhead, also broke out a couple new songs.

I might have one of the titles on the new cuts wrong (it sounds in the video like he’s saying it’s “Freedom something” but I can’t make out quite what), but otherwise, this is how it breaks down:

Green Speed
Hold on Love
Crystal Madonna
I Don’t Care
Dark Ravine
Shot in the Head
Iron Horse
Waltz Across Texas
Dead Yesterday
Forever Gone

Of those, “Shot in the Head” is Savoy Brown‘s, “Waltz Across Texas” is Springsteen and “Iron Horse” is Motörhead, everything else is original. By the end of their touring cycle in support of the collaborative Heavy Kingdom album (review here), Wino & Conny Ochs were performing “Crystal Madonna” regularly, though it has yet to surface in a studio version, and “Freedom…” and “Forever Gone” are new songs. The rest, and indeed “Iron Horse” and “Shot in the Head” come either from Heavy Kingdom, or from Wino‘s 2010 Adrift acoustic debut (review here).

It’s a cool show and seems like both Wino and the crowd are having a good time, so between that and the new songs, it was an obvious pick. Hope you enjoy and have a great Wino Wednesday:
