Cities have begun to reopen (NYC is in the early stages of doing so) and some people are finding socially-distant ways to put on concerts, but the world of live entertainment as we know it is still far from back to normal. In addition to watching the many livestreams that happen every day, one thing we've been turning to in these concert-less times is live concert footage, and 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:

Run The Jewels @ Terminal 5 - 3/1/2017

Run The Jewels just released their vital new album last week, and if not for these concert-less times, they'd be supporting it on tour with Rage Against the Machine. (The tour was rescheduled for 2021.) Since we'll have to wait a while to finally see RTJ live again, here's a great pro-shot video from the sold-out, four-night run at NYC's Terminal 5 that the duo did in 2017. Killer Mike and El-P have always brought it on stage -- their chemistry is undeniable, and their loud, booming beats and boundless energy are simply built to be experienced in person.

Freddie Gibbs @ The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA - 6/27/2018

Another new album I can't stop listening to is Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist's Alfredo, so here's a pro-shot, full-concert video of on the Freddie tour. He opened the show by performing Freddie in full, and then he did a handful of older songs including two from the first Freddie Gibbs & Madlib album. Freddie's a real rapper's rapper, and that always comes across on stage, where his rhymes are as airtight as they are in the studio. And compared to the smoky, chilled-out sounds of Alfredo, Freddie is loud and in-your-face in this video, and that's always a great side of him too. [Andrew Sacher]


Massive Attack @ Arkéa Arena Floirac Bordeaux 2019

Trip hop icons Massive Attack celebrated their classic 1998 third album, Mezzanine, on tour last year, recontextualizing it into today's world, mixing the original album tracks with covers of songs that were sampled on it. The shows also featured album vocalists Liz Fraser (Cocteau Twins) and Horace Andy and truly mind-blowing visuals they created with filmmaker Adam Curtis. Unsurprisingly, the songs with Fraser are the real standouts. The best moment might be the cover of Pete Seeger's "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" that Massive Attack all but turn into a Cocteau Twins song while images of war atrocities and The Wizard of Oz play in the background.

Leikeli47 @ BrooklynVegan SXSW at Cheer Up Charlies - 3/16/2018

We hosted masked, genre-defying rapper and singer Leikeli47 was at one of our BrooklynVegan SXSW day parties with Margin Walker in 2018, where she delivered one of the best sets we saw all week. She had the crowd constantly moving (and sometimes joining her to dance onstage) as she performed tracks from her great 2017 LP Wash & Set. Leikeli very deservedly received more widespread recognition with the release of Acrylic later in 2018, and it's fun watching her totally win over a crowd ahead of that. [Amanda Hatfield]


Billy Bragg @ Termon Hall 7/17/1999

Billy Bragg brings the same heart to his political anthems as he does to his romantic songs and is a master at both. He's also master orator and his live shows are as much about his between-song banter as it it classics like "Levi Stubbs Tears," "Greetings to the New Brunette" and "Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards." You get a lot of both at this great 1999 show in Ireland. [Bill Pearis]
