I stumbled on the last half of that about a week ago - I think it
was on the AXS channel. Really enjoyed it, so I kept an eye out
for re-runs and got to see the first half a few days later.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought I must have slipped into
an alternate dimension while watching Waters sing "The Night They
Drove Old Dixie Down".
I had never heard of Grace Potter before seeing that concert, but
a few days ago they were showing one of her band's shows and I saw
the last 10-15 minutes of it. I don't think I've evern seen anyone
who is as *into* performing as she is. Bouncing all over the place
and frequently hopping up from the keyboards to high-five the front
row. The music was only so-so, but the stage presence was amazing.
