MP3 At 3PM: Tommy Keene


For a small subset of listeners inclined toward powerful guitar pop, Tommy’s Keene 2000 effort, Showtunes, is a strong contender for second on the list of great live records. (The Who’s Live At Leeds being first, of course.) Self-released and sold on his recent tour, and now on his website, Showtunes II—as the name implies—is a sequel. Largely comprising a 2014 solo show opening for Matthew Sweet, Showtunes II also includes two tracks from a 1996 concert featuring the late Jay Bennett in the lineup. A scorching version of “Call On Me” from the latter gig showcases Keene’s underrated guitar prowess.
