I have not seen any footage from the former Bowie band members' tour.  Will definitely look for it on YouTube.

It was incredible.  This is the tour I saw, just not in Jax.  Same line up.  The singers wer Earl Slick  and Benard Fowler back up singer for Bowie/Stones and Cory Glover from Living Colour.  His voice was amazing.  He did a version of Changes that was mind blowing.  Legit, had chills through my body.  The quality sucks but you can kind of hear how good he is;

edit found a better video

By far the most underrepresented band here in this thread. Janes Addiction was cutting edge around that 80's to 90's turn and Perry Farrell is incredibly underrated. Easily one of my 3 favorite bands.

 

Too funny, I went on a Janes kick this weekend.  Love this tune;

Lots of rage and frustration has filled my heart over the past few weeks and the one song that is just on repeat in my head as I keep reading more and more ridiculously terrible stories of racial injustice, Preach on NOFX, preach on:

Anyone catch the Root Picnic?  Pretty good sh*t.   It's very go out and vote focused, so just heads up if you're not looking to hear it and want to just see the shows.  there is a list of the musicians and when they go on in the link

Highlights.  

Black Thought - 3:40

19:53 - H.E.R. - if you havent heard of her, check this out.  She is absolutely incredible and breaks into one of the most powerful and beautiful spoken word poems I've ever heard.  @Jetsfan80 @GATA @T0mShane

Dude, she just has insane versatility.  I cant wait to see where she takes her career.  She's got like Stevie/Gaye type versatility/song writing and a similar radical vibe.

I mean, come'on.  Mike Ness is the straight sh*t.  How is Social D not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?  They created a genre for christ sake.

Great watch on one of the most underrated and under appreciated songwriters of all time.

Continuing my punk rock top 5 front men (got stuck listening to a bunch of Social D. yesterday, lol).  Honestly, it's splitting hairs between this guy and Mike but Mike being around through my adult years too just give him the notch but hard to argue anyone was better than:

And now you're saying but JiF, there are so many great punk leads that left who is it going to be?

The legendary Iggy Pop?  Nope. 

Greg Graffin of Bad Religion?  Nah

Keith Morris originally of Black Flag and then the Circle Jerks?  No.

David Johansen - New York Dolls? Nada.

Danzig of the Misfits?  Not quite....

Other great ones I havent mentioned but this one is special, especially considering the boundaries they broke in the scene;

Nice, local band. Maybe the Washington Bad Brains? Skins new name? 

I'd probably quit the Jets for the Bad Brains.  lol

It really is a great fit. Apparently they didnt have an HR dept., so hire H.R. to run sh*t.  lol.    He'd field an all rastafarian roster.

The sound quality on this video sucks but is there a more get you amped intro to a song ever?   Whenever I get ready to skate or surf and need a little extra juice to get going...it's these 2 songs who have equally incredible intros to pure amp.

Better quality version:

 

and then this intro....

Not to switch gears (even though this band started out as hardcore punkers) I always loved this tune by the Beastie's using Sonic Reducer...
