Music

Want to enjoy a musical performance online while you are in the house.  The Live Music Archive contains thousands of concert recordings for hundreds of artists. A popular collection is The Grateful Dead, but you can explore Smashing Pumpkins, Robert Randolph (and the Family Band), Disco Biscuits, Death Cab for Cutie, John Mayer, or Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. (If wizard rock is more your style, we also have several concerts from Harry and the Potters.) Take a look and see if any of your favorite artists are in here
