Basically no shows are happening due to the coronavirus outbreak (though some artists are doing livestreams instead), but if you’re already jonesing to see a show, or just need a brief distraction from the insanity of the world right now, thankfully there’s YouTube which has an amazing array of live footage from throughout the history of pop music, from clips from concert films, TV performances and other pro-shot footage, to tons of fan-shot video from shows. If you’re looking for a place to start, we’ve been picking some of our favorites. Here are five more:

Fugazi @ 924 Gilman St - 5/20/90

With the release of the debut album by Ian MacKaye and Joe Lally's band Coriky postponed until further notice, and the increased unlikelihood of Fugazi getting back together any time soon (since no bands can get back together right now), a video like this is more crucial than ever for those of us still holding out for a Fugazi reunion. It was filmed at the legendary 924 Gilman a month after Repeater came out, and it's a thrill to watch Fugazi run through favorites from that album and the EPs before it like "Turnover," "Greed," "Blueprint," "Waiting Room," "Bulldog Front," and more. (They also opened with an instrumental portion of "Reclamation," which wouldn't be released until the following year.) Fugazi's reputation as a killer live band has long been solidified, and videos like this remind you exactly why. [Andrew Sacher]


Dinosaur Jr @ Kardomah Cafe, Sydney - 10/15/89

Even all these years later, Dinosaur Jr are true lifers and one of the greatest (and loudest) bands in underground rock, but there's still nothing like watching them during their late '80s prime. This was shot on their 1989 Australian tour about a year after Bug came out, and though Lou Barlow had just been ousted from the band, Donna Dresch (later of Team Dresch) filled in with Dino for this tour and thankfully someone captured footage of her rocking with J and Murph as they ran through now-classic songs like "Freak Scene," "Yeah We Know," "Kracked," "Sludgefeast," and more.

Tori Amos @ Braden Auditorum, Normal, IL, 9/24/1996

Tori Amos spent much of 1996 touring her third (and best) LP, Boys for Pele, which came out in January of that year. The setlists of these Dew Drop Inn tour shows featured an embarrassment of riches, perhaps more than any other Tori live era, opening with "Beauty Queen" and "Horses," the main set closing with "Me and a Gun;" Tori attacking the piano and harpsichord throughout, sometimes using the piano as percussion. This September show includes covers of The Cure and Led Zeppelin, too. [Amanda Hatfield]


Metronomy @ Main Square Festival, 2012

Metronomy have been one of the most consistently entertaining live dance rock band of the decade, mixing showmanship, and talent with whimsy, self-effacing humor and a stable full of bangers. They're especially fun at festivals, as you can see in this video from the 2012 edition of Arras, France's Main Square Festival. They were still hot off of The English Riviera and the set was pretty much divided between the hits from that record -- "The Look," "The Bay," "Everything Goes My Way" -- and the good stuff from 2008's Nights Out. The whole band are fun to watch, especially bassist Gbenga Adelekan and keyboardist Oscar Cash who both have their own unique killer dance moves. They're a joy. [Bill Pearis]


Sloan @ Arboretum Music Festival, Ottawa 2016

Sloan are a cult band in the U.S. but in Canada they are pretty famous, having had a number of big hits in the '90s including "Money City Maniacs" which remains a hockey stadium classic. Here they are in their element, at Ottawa's Arboretum Music Festival in 2016. Usually for Canadian festivals it's just a greatest hits set, but this was part of the anniversary tour for 1996's great One Chord to Another, so we get that whole album played in full, plus a second set of hits, including "Money City Maniacs," "Losing California," "Penpals," "The Other Man" and their grammar-gaze anthem "Underwhelmed." Look out for when drummer Andrew Scott comes from behind the kit to sing his songs, and bassist Chris Murphy takes over on drums and goes full Keith Moon. [Bill Pearis]
