Here’s another song recorded live on Saturday, February 26 at Wizapalooza, the day-long memorial concert and tribute to the late John Wisniewski.

This is Alison Jacobs at the microphone, backed by Johnny Rabb & the Jailhouse Rockers as she wails through a sassy cover of Koko Taylor’s classic “You Can Have My Husband”:

In addition to Alison Jacobs, the line-up of musicians features Scotty Mac, Dave Maswick, Mark Foster, Johnny Rabb, Buck Malen, John Tichy and Cliff Lyons. What a crew…

And if you’re looking for more photos from Wizapalooza, Daniel Hogan has posted a batch on his Facebook page.

Friedman is an artist. No, really. His work regularly appears in rags like, um, The New Yorker, and he even offered prints for sale at the Caffe, of jokers like Leonard Cohen, Ralph Stanley and some Dylan cat.
