Tickets go on sale to the public tomorrow at noon, but you can get yours today 9am-9pm through this presale (password FUVCHEER2014).

Justin Townes Earle - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Returning with his fifth album, Single Mothers, Justin Townes Earle reflects on the romances of his youth and his relationship with his mother, who had raised him on her own. With a three-piece band, the record’s gentle and warm sound provides a comforting feel to Justin's complex and emotional lyrics. Justin recently stopped by Studio A to talk about and play us some of the new songs. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.

Avi Buffalo - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg is the main main behind the moniker Avi Buffalo. He began writing songs while he was in high school and before he even graduated he was signed to the prestigious indie label Sub Pop and began touring the world behind his brilliant self-titled debut album. This year he released his sophomore album, At Best Cuckold, and Avi explained that the new songs were inspired by writing "about life, dealing with relationships and yourself, and trying to keep your head up and keep learning amidst whatever it is you’re going through." A very mature 23-year-old indeed.
