THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with LIVE AID!  It was recently the anniversary of the trans-Atlantic rock event aimed at aiding starving people in Ethiopia (Its prime movers, like Bob Geldof & Bono, would later discover, actually getting the aid past the Marxist dictatorship would be the difficult part). Most of the day's music has found its way online, including the set from Queen that was memorialized in Boheman Rhapsody, a decidiely career-boosting appearance by U2, a look at the pre-lip-syncing Madonna, a peak-80s Bowie set and -- as my pal Nathan reminded me  -- a raft of appearances from the Style Council to the Four Tops to Paul Young to Judas Priest to the Cars to the Beach Boys to the Pretenders to The Who to Simple Minds to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and so many more.  Revisiting these videos, I was particularly taken by a solo Elvis Costello (who pobably could not afford a touring band at this point in his career) making The Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" much more than what's on the page with help from a stadium crowd, and the improbable greatness of Kiki Dee in Mom wear, joining Elton John for "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."

SOCCER MOMMY, Live at Rockwood Music Hall.

ALL SONGS CONSIDERED features Margo Price, renforshort, The Mountain Goats, Tianna Esperanza, and more.

PTICHFORK MUSIC FESTIVAL: This weekend, stream sets from the National, Japanese Breakfast, Toro y Moi, Cate Le Bon, Parquet Courts, Noname, Ethel Cain, Indigo De Souza, Wiki, and more.

NINETIES MUSIC is more popular than music from any other decade right now. Sigh.
