Tym Morrison's Second Live-Streamed Concert, Plus New Facebook Videos!!

With a day or so to gather new content for another post on the site, we're dipping back into the solo performance video well today, including new material from a long-gestating local band, a blues cover from a punk staple, and leading off, another lengthy live-streamed set from a familiar veteran presence in the local scene! Here's what you should know!

The second installment of local hard rock singer/guitarist Tym Morrison's live-streamed Twitch concerts went up last night, so fans who miss his regular acoustic concert dates have another 2 hour batch of covers to enjoy! Unlike last week's debut of the "Live Guitar & Singing Of All Mightyness 7th Show", the wait for this one to start is much shorter (only 14 minutes), but yesterday's live-stream was broken up into two videos. The first half is embedded below, and it features Tym starting with Supertramp's "The Logical Song" before pausing the stream to restart his computer over bandwidth concerns. After a minute or so off-air, Tym returns to cover Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud", The Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun", Amanda Marshall's "Trust Me (This Is Love)", Chris de Burgh's "Lady In Red", Oasis' "Wonderwall", and The Romantics' "Talking In Your Sleep". The second half of the live-stream features Tym covering Journey's "Lights", A-ha's "Take On Me", Tom Petty's "Yer So Bad" ...

... 10cc's "I'm Not In Love", Phil Collins' "One More Night", Yes' "Owner Of A Lonely Heart", The Beatles' "Blackbird", Jim Croce's "Time In A Bottle", Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)", Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive", Roxette's "It Must Have Been Love", Supertramp's "Breakfast In America", Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise", and Cutting Crew's "(I Just) Died in Your Arms", before closing with an original instrumental. A little shorter than last week's live-stream, Tym's guitar skills and rangy singing are as solid as ever, and this should nicely help fill time while we wait for Gliss and other venues to re-open! Given Tym's extensive setlist, I am surprised that he performed 12 covers that he already did in last week's video, curiously all from his first 15 songs there, but I'm sure some are regular live staples. Check out Tym's newest live-streamed concert above and below, and might the teased Thursday installment happen tomorrow?

Next up, here's a Facebook cover video from Inner City Surfers bassist Brad "Example" Lacell, as posted on his personal Facebook page last month, then shared on label Tidal Records' Facebook page afterward. This is a vocal/acoustic guitar cover of Steve Earle's "Lonelier Than This", and it has a rough, plainclothes honesty that suits the presentation, and is in line with much of Brad's post-Role Models solo material! He did introduce the video by promising to "play a couple of songs", but the second video wasn't shared publically that I know of. For now, give this cover a watch below!

We'll close today with the newest video from local metal band Chronic Demonic, whose public updates have continued to be sporadic and anti-climactic (their last Facebook page status in November is particularly dour.) That said, this video from last month helps get things on a more positive trajectory, as it features guitarist Kevin Powe playing some "death riffs" that could turn into a Chronic Demonic original song in time. Positive news has been extremely slow from their camp, but these riff are promising, and hopefully we finally hear some more forward momentum from the guys once the pandemic is over! Check this one out below!

That's all for today, but stay tuned for more news and notes on the site in the coming days! Thanks everyone!
