Live from Abbey Road

By Waldo Jaquith
Dave Matthews will be featured on an episode of a new series on the Sundance Channel, "Live from Abbey Road." As televised concerts yielded to cozier environs (ie, MTV's "Unplugged"), so too have the latter apparently yielded: "Live From Abbey Road" is filmed in the famed record studio, sans audience. The first season has quite a line-up -- Norah Jones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Massive Attack, Paul Simon and Gnarls Barkley are some of the guests -- and includes Dave Matthews in the seventh episode. No broadcast data has been provided, though it looks like it should appear in early August. Thanks to John-Mark for the tip.
