Ryan Adams and his band performed an extensive set for FUV at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in the West Village. Ryan has worked at Electric Lady before, but his new, self-produced and self-titled album was recorded at his own funky studio called Pax Am. The performance debuted some new songs and revisited a few from his vast catalog, and the band is on point at every step, going from strident riffs to open-ended jams with Ryan in fine voice.
