I’m not real sure what happened to all the you-tubers this weekend. Actually, I think I have a good guess, but apparently they didn't see Pete’s post about this past weekend's shows. Something seemed to be amiss on the cyber waves. Apparently the you-tubers decided they needed some time off too...

Anyway, on to the video clips...

Close your eyes and imagine you have dreadlocks and that they are swaying to the slow beat of the rhythm section under the stars while you're holding hands with my significant other who also has his eyes closed, and his dreadlocks are swaying too. Ah, nice...anyway, that's what comes to my mind when I listen to this clip of Bob Schneider at the Granada Theater from last Friday...

Without warning, I am jolted straight out of my dream-like state and into the following performance from Nas at his House of Blues show last Thursday. The guy in the background is awesome, by the way; it’s like closed captioning, only off key...

Merle Haggard made “Mama Tried” famous, but The King Bucks decided to give it a whirl at the Capitol Pub on Sunday night...

What good is music without dancing, right? Well, according to season one of America’s Best Dance Crew the JabbaWockeeZ are the best of the best. So, how freakin’ lucky are we that they were at the Palladium last Saturday? Um....pretty lucky?

Fort Worth’s own Green River Ordinance was at the Granada Saturday. Here’s the five-member band rocking the stage and the lights with “Goodbye L.A.”...

And this group is like the Jonas Brothers with badass hair...maybe just a little? OK, well maybe not at all--but the screaming girls in the background give off the same vibe. Tokio Hotel is a teenage…er...hard rock?…band from Germany who have already made it big over there and are trying to do the same over here. Here’s “Breakaway” from their House of Blues show last Wednesday...

…and that was kinda your Labor Day weekend. --Courtney Clenney
