The Shaggs reunited at Solid Sound fest (video, setlist)
In addition to performances by Kurt Vile, Television, Kevin Morby, and organizers Wilco (who ended up playing not one but two classic LPs), this weekend's Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, MA featured a reunion of outsider art cult group The Shaggs who hadn't played a show in nearly 18 years. On Saturday, June 24 Dot and Betty Wiggin (drummer Helen Wiggin died in 2006) had help from a few other musicians who kept things appropriately loose and loosely tuned, and they played played Shaggs classics like "Who Are Parents?" "My Pal Foot Foot," "It's Halloween," "Philosophy of the World" plus their cover of Marie Osmond's "Paper Roses." Check out the setlist and a couple videos below.
