On The Run: Introducing The Sam Roberts Band Video Map

We plotted a couple hundred Sam Roberts Band live videos on a map, because why the heck not?

They’re a touring rock band, after all. What better way to track the comings and goings of our beloved SRB than with a map covering a healthy dose of their live shows over the years?

All these videos can be found on YouTube, but some require a deeper, more determined search than others.  Sometimes, the best videos have almost no views, and that’s just tragic. We’ve creeped (deep), and found some gems you might not have seen before, and some classics you’ve committed to memory for sure.

Just click the map below to get started. (It’s also a widget over there. See?)

The only things you really need to know: The map is searchable – search Brother, you’ll get Brother Down. Search Grog Shop, you’ll go to Ohio. Zoom in, and you’ll narrow down your options. Click a numbered icon, and those videos will appear in the sidebar along the right.

Never enough: The live SRB videos on YouTube are almost endless, so there’s definitely more than a few missing here.  If you’ve filmed the SRB live in the flesh in your town, and uploaded said live, in the flesh performance to YouTube, just send the link and we’ll be sure to add.

The medium is definitely the message: In a testament to the time, we’ve included a few videos of the earliest of days we could find, when Eric played guitar and nobody wasted their time with haircuts. These videos are lo-def, high energy. Might I suggest On The Run at The Paradiso in Amsterdam? It is a delightful vintage, and you will not be disappointed. Promise.
