FUV Vault: Live Concerts

Shovels and Rope - Live Concert - 2012

We headed to Electric Lady Studios for an FUV Live show with this husband-and-wife duo from Charleston, South Carolina. Shovels & Rope takes inspiration from forebears like X and The Cramps, but they've got their own brand of folky cow-punk that's both raucous and tender. Their terrific debut album, O' Be Joyful, recently came out, and we thought a live set was in order too.

Sigur Rós - Live Concert - 2012

Sigur Rós could be forgiven for sounding better on record than in concert. The Icelandic band's songs either billow out deliberately or stomp majestically, and in every case entail the building of layers upon intricate sonic layers. Plus, singer Jónsi — he of the otherworldly voice, singing mostly in a ghostly language of his own devising — is no Mick Jagger when it comes to calling attention to himself. He's created an air of shyly vulnerable mystery that seems antithetical to showmanship.

And yet it's not hyperbolic to suggest that Sigur Rós is one of the world's great live bands, creating a hypnotic, almost overwhelming experience. Just last year, that experience was documented in a gorgeous DVD/CD package called Inni, which showcases both Sigur Rós' epic sonic sweep and an ability to complement it with gripping, enveloping visuals. Now, the band is touring to support this year's gorgeous Valtari — making its first live appearances in four years — and playing career-spanning two-hour shows like this July 31 concert at New York City's Prospect Park as part of the Celebrate Brooklyn series.

The group's first album since 2008 — Jónsi released the effervescent and uplifting solo album Go in the interim — Valtari returns to the roots of Sigur Rós' moodily slow-building, almost impossibly pretty sound. Though it occasionally builds up to a furious clamor, most notably in "Varúð," Valtari floats around in a dreamy sweet spot: calming but portentous, with every moment milked for maximum drama and beauty. On the live stage in Brooklyn, Sigur Rós indulges in its specialty, as it fuses uncommon delicacy with uncommon power, while compromising neither.

Steve Earle at Holiday Cheer for WFUV - Live Concert - 2012

Steve Earle only needed a subway to get from his home in the West Village to The Beacon Theatre for Holiday Cheer for FUV. Of course, he's logged many miles living his life as an artist, always gathering inspiration from life's experiences.

At the show, Steve performed a solo, acoustic set that included a brand new song, before joining Lucinda Williams for a few songs too. In between, he talked with FUV's Russ Borris backstage. Check out that conversation and Steve's set below, and listen to all of Holiday Cheer for WFUV: Live from The Beacon Theatre, online anytime.

Steve Forbert- Live Concert- 2007

Darren DeVivo hosts this special broadcast featuring Steve Forbert, recorded in May 2007 at The Cutting Room in Manhattan. [5/29/07]

Steve Martin and Edie Brickell - Live Concert - 2013

The new album, Love Has Come For You, pairs the banjo chops of Steve Martin with the warm, melodic voice of Edie Brickell. Hear how that combination translates live in this memorable (and yes, funny) FUV Live show where Steve and Edie were joined on the City Winery stage by The Steep Canyon Rangers, as well as the album's producer, Peter Asher.

Suzanne Vega- Live Concert- 2007

Twenty years after 'Tom's Diner' painted a picture of New York City's Upper West Side, Suzanne Vega creates an album's worth of portraits on 'Beauty and Crime' -- her first release in 6 years. Tonight, hear the new songs and more in a special City Folk Live concert recorded at Bennett Studios in New Jersey, hosted by Rita Houston. [5/14/07]

Taj Mahal- Live Concert- 2008

The Festival of Lessons and Carols - A one-hour performance by the Fordham University Choir and Bronx Arts Ensemble, recorded live at the Fordham University Church.

The Highline Sessions at Del Posto II - Live Concert - 2013

I often say that I major in music with a minor in food, so putting together "The Highline Sessions at Del Posto" with restaurateur, winemaker and FUV Member, Joe Bastianich, has been a labor of love to say the least. The series is a benefit for FUV and a benefit to the ears and taste buds of everyone in the room. In the latest show, Joe and his band The Ramps performed as part of a line-up with John Pizzarelli, Gaetano Valic, The Lone Bellow and Josh Ritter. Listen to highlights here.

It's a performance by The Little Willies at The Bell House in Brooklyn, featuring songs from their forthcoming album, 'For The Good Times.' [recorded 10/30/11]

The Lone Bellow - Live Concert - 2013

About to ride a wave of discovery and excitement out onto a national tour, Brooklyn's The Lone Bellow squeezed one last WFUV show into their schedule at Manhattan's City Winery. We've been there from the beginning, watching their fans multiply with each show and each spin on the radio.

You'll instantly hear what makes this band so interesting -- a rare combination of raw talent, passion and great songs. Zach, Brian and Kanene are joined by a rhythm section for a wonderfully rich set that draws mostly from their recently released debut album. John Prine's "Angel From Montgomery" gets The Lone Bellow's power harmony treatment as part of their set, and we all get to hear a new, unreleased song.

The show came to a close with a rocking version of "The One You Should've Let Go," leaving everyone in the room exhilarated, satisfied and sweaty!

The Lone Bellow - Live Concert - 2013

A lot is about to change and quickly for this trio of Southerners who now call Brooklyn home: The Lone Bellow has yet to perform outside of New York, but their debut album is already charting on iTunes. They just quit their day jobs this week so they'll be able to go on tour. You'll see in this performance why they're bound to connect with new fans on the road. Zach Williams, Kanene Pipkin and Brian Elmquist are natural, passionate live performers who play and sing in close harmony with startling confidence.

Their debut album, The Lone Bellow, was recorded at Rockwood Music Hall, closing the place for three days and nights. This FUV Live show took place on the same stage, which might explain just a little of the magic.

Tom Waits Tribute Concert- Live Concert- 2004

Trampled By Turtles - Live Concert - 2012

Minnesota band Trampled By Turtles made the Billboard bluegrass chart with their latest album, but they definitely have rock in their roots. The guys spoke more about their history - and their brand new album 'Stars and Satellites' - during an FUV Live show at the Ace Hotel in NYC, hosted by Alisa Ali. [recorded: 04/16/12]

Valerie June - Live Concert - 2013

Valerie June draws on the rich wellspring of American roots music to create her fresh modern take on the blues. Her love of the blues tradition is clear, but her own life experiences — from growing up in Jackson, Tennessee to living in her current home of Brooklyn — fully inform her songs. This FUV Live performance from City Winery is one of the most musically wide-ranging sets I've heard in a long while. From her solo songs to full band arrangements with trumpet, this show is a rewarding listen and marks the arrival of a new artist worth knowing about.

Wax Poetic at CMJ - Live Concert - 2012

One of many bands nurtured by the East Village club Nublu, New York's effortlessly-chill Wax Poetic has been around since the '90s, but the group has shifted lineups over the years. Guided by composer Ilhan Ersahin, the current incarnation of the band features Sissy Clemens and Gabriel Gordon, who were on hand for Wax Poetic's cool, silky set at WFUV and The Alternate Side's CMJ showcase on October 16.   

Wax Poetic's smooth new album, On a Ride, which came out in September, also includes guest vocalists like Natalie Walker, Jovanotti and former Wax Poetic member Norah Jones.

WFUV at SXSW: Charles Bradley

Don't be afraid of a little sweaty soul music, it's good for you.

Among the Daptone Records artists who travelled to Austin for 2013’s SXSW music conference, Charles Bradley (@Charles_Bradley) stands out as an amazing story in a field of pretty amazing stories.

A 1962 James Brown concert at the Apollo is cited as the spark that brought out the fiery performer in a young Charles, who spent decades performing in relative obscurity — principally as Black Velvet, a James Brown tribute artist.

It wasn’t until he was in his 60s that he was discovered as an original performer, building a reputation as "The Screaming Eagle of Soul" and releasing his debut album, No Time For Dreaming, at the age of 63. (He is the subject of a documentary, Soul of America, that premiered at SXSW in 2012.)

His second album, Victim of Love, comes out in April. In the meantime, enjoy this performance from the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage show from SXSW 2013 — listen to audio of the full set, below, and watch a video for "Why Is It So Hard?," above.

WFUV at SXSW: Dawes

L.A.-based Dawes (@DawesTheBand) is well-rooted in the Southern California folk-country-rock world, it’s in their blood. But they’ve seen a whole lot more of the world since releasing two big albums and doing some big touring.

With the help of producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon), and with their career under their own control via HUB Records, Dawes is reaching outside their world for new influences. Expect them to show up on their third album, Stories Don’t End, due in April.

We caught up with the band during their SXSW 2013 Austin dates right in the middle of a two-week tour of independent record stores across the U.S.; they're about to go on the road with Bob Dylan and then embark on their own tour, and they’ve spent their spare time fighting malaria in Rwanda.

But some things about Dawes you can count on: The big-picture lyricism of Taylor Goldsmith, their energetic live shows (brother Griffin Goldsmith makes the best drumming faces you’ve ever seen), and a basic warmth that makes you smile as you sing along with the Dawes songs stuck in your head.

Here's the set (listen, below) that Dawes played at the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage at SXSW 2013, a collaboration between FUV and stations in Philadelphia (WXPN), Minneapolis (The Current), Dallas (KXT) and Austin (KUTX), and video footage of "From a Window Seat," above.

We’re particularly excited for this release at FUV thanks to our fun relationship with them and their music: Dawes played at our Holiday Cheer for FUV 2011 show; they did a live session and interview in Studio A in August of 2011; WFUV’s Best Songs of 2011 Listener Poll placed them at positions 2 and 3 with "A Little Bit of Everything" and "Time Spent in Los Angeles"; and they’ve got a song on our FUV Live 15 CD of best studio performances.

We also spent time with Dawes on the road in 2012, when NPR Music recorded their performance at the Newport Folk Festival.
 

WFUV at SXSW: Divine Fits

Britt Daniel (of Spoon) met Dan Boeckner (of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs) in 2007. They kept in touch, played some shows together, and the musical romance eventually moved on to California to blossom into the so-called ‘supergroup’ Divine Fits (@DivineFits), with the addition of Sam Brown on drums and Alex Fischel on keys.

They went public in 2012 with A Thing Called Divine Fits, and their first, surprise public performances were in Austin, Texas, where we meet up with them now for the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage at SXSW 2013.

FUV’s Music Director Russ Borris says, "‘Supergroup’ gives the impression of a bunch of musicians who are passing time between their regular gigs to play around a bit — [but] Divine Fits is no side project. This is a great new band.”

Daniel and Boeckner share songwriting duties for the Divine Fits, and vocals as well – and as you can see in this performance, they also share a blistering stage presence and some serious guitar skills.

And for Dan fans: Boeckner recently scored a film soundtrack, for John Cusack's Adult World with Emma Roberts, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.

WFUV at SXSW: Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell

There’s some deep history behind all this. In 1975, Emmylou Harris (@SoEmmylouHarris) released her major-label debut, Pieces of the Sky, and Warner Bros. Records said they’d record her if she’d "get a hot band." Emmylou had already done one of Rodney Crowell's songs, and she asked him to go out on the road; thus they formed the duet partnership at the center of The Hot Band.

That lasted until Rodney Crowell (@RodneyJCrowell) released his debut in 1978, and they’ve each since enjoyed stellar careers in the alt-country world.  In 2007, Emmylou wrote, "we've been talking for 34 years about doing a duet record, and I swear we're going to do it.” If it worked once, can it work again?

Yep. Old Yellow Moon is the album.

Emmylou is probably the most sought-after duet partner on the planet. Many of us first heard her voice as part of a duet team with a male voice. If that’s your thing, you’ll find joy and comfort in this collection of tunes — new ones, except for that original song that brought them together.

Watch Emmylou and Rodney at the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage at SXSW 2013, with the Kris Kristofferson song "Chase the Feeling," and listen to the whole set below.

WFUV at SXSW: Iron and Wine

Sam Beam is back again in 2013, but he's wearing a different suit. The absolute master of the hushed and lovely modern ballad, live performances of Iron & Wine (@IronAndWine) have become a more dynamic affair over the past few years, mixing in global influences: African-flavored guitar, Sun-Ra licks.

Each of his albums is like a new chapter (Kiss Each Other Clean has the energy of pop; The Shepherd's Dog is more jazzy, etc.) Two songs have crept out in advance of his upcoming full-length release, and we’re all waiting to see how the new material fits together.

Iron and Wine’s recent move to Nonesuch Records (home of legacy artists like Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang, Randy Newman and more), known for fostering true artists with long-term careers, bodes well for fans who are excitedly anticipating whatever direction Sam decides to go in next.

For his set at the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage show, Sam gave us several new songs in solo acoustic mode, and was gracious enough to also take requests from the (over-the-moon) audience, bringing several favorites out of the vault.

Watch: "Naked As We Came" from the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage, SXSW 2013, above, and a new one, "Winter Prayer," below.

WFUV at SXSW: Pickwick

Seattle’s Pickwick (@PickwickMusic) found themselves in a crowded scene of folk-rock until they busted out in a soul direction, thanks in no small part to the big fat vocals of lead singer Galen Disston.

Of all the Public Radio Rocks artist picks, this is the new, young band we're picking to be a future hit.  A public radio discovery thanks to our sister station KEXP, they’re about to release their debut record, Can't Talk Medicine, after a year of putting out singles as vinyl 45s.

The soul icing on their rock cake brings more than just a vocal style, though. As guitarist Michael Parker told KEXP: "I think what we’ve all identified with and draw from on those classic 60′s &70′s soul records is the combination of passion, groove, and melody that the artists from that time seemed to possess. The energy on those old R&B/Soul tunes is undeniable. Those folks put 100% of themselves behind the vocal and the performance. It’s really inspiring stuff to listen to. On top of that, it’s music that forces you to interact with it physically. I don’t know know of anyone who can listen to the opening riff of a song like “Superstition” without bobbing their head or tapping their foot. Nick Drake is great, but his music doesn’t make you do that."

Rounding out the 6-piece combo is Kory Kruckenberg, Michael’s brother Garrett Parker, Cassady Lillstrom and Alex Westcoat.

WFUV at SXSW: Vampire Weekend

Indie rockers who bonded over a love of punk and African music at Columbia University in 2006, Vampire Weekend (@VampireWeekend) still call New York City home through a wave of success following their first two releases. The four members — Ezra Koenig (lead vocals, guitar), Rostam Batmanglij (keys, guitar), Chris Tomson (drums), and Chris Baio (bass) — busted out with their first self-titled album in 2008, then Contra in 2010.

Their third album, Modern Vampires of the City, is due out in May. Koenig has described it as "darker and more organic" than the others, and "very much the last of a trilogy" — we’ll see what that means.

Vampire Weekend closed out the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage with a blistering set that had a couple thousand fans (the ones lucky enough not to get turned away at the door) jumping around with enough enthusiasm to make the floor actually shake. In a conference center.

Watch Vampire Weekend at the Public Radio Rocks Day Stage, SXSW 2013 with "Unbelievers," and listen to the whole set.

Wilco - Solid Sound Festival - 2013

Wilco at Solid Sound Festival 2013

What's better than a night of Wilco under the stars? Two nights!

The band headlined both Friday and Saturday nights at their Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA., but the shows couldn't have been more different.

It was their first ever all-request, all-covers set on Friday night (more here) and Saturday brought a full-on rocking set for true Wilco fans. It was a sold out show under the super moon, full of deep tracks and rarities. They opened with "I Got You (At the End of the Century)" and closed with "Dreamer of My Dreams."

With this festival, the guys in Wilco are not only the headliners but the curators, and manage to create a refreshing climate of artistic community and shared appreciation of modern art and music. You can hear all it bouncing off the Supermoon and back, below.

Wilderness of Manitoba - WFUV Live - 2011

The Wilderness of Manitoba is actually from Toronto, and honed their lushly-orchestrated sound during a few homegrown jam sessions. Now they've released their debut album, 'When You Left The Fire,' and they spoke more about it with host Rita Houston during an FUV Live show at MSR Studios. [6/3/11]

Willy Mason - Live Concert - 2013

Willy Mason’s career has been an amazing series of important connections and relationships (or as he put it, “accidents”). It began with his initial discovery by a friend of Conor Oberst, which led to his subsequent tour with Bright Eyes and the release of his debut, Where Humans Eat, on Oberst’s Team Love Records. Since then Willy has earned the admiration and support of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, collaborated with Lianne La Havas on her Mercury-prize nominated debut, and recorded a few of his parents’ songs with Brendan Benson in Nashville, which resulted in a Record Store Day release. Now he has been signed by Communion Records - the label of Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons - and his third album, Carry On, will be released in the U.S. in August. Willy shared material from Carry On and a couple of his parents’ songs during this intimate and engaging FUV Live performance at The Living Room.

Woody's Children 45th Anniversary Concert


Every five years, we try to do something special on Woody's Children, and for our 45th birthday, we really hit the jackpot. The late, dearly loved Pete Seeger had planned to be there, and of course was deeply missed, but with us were such music masters as David Amram, Tom Chapin and The Chapin Sisters (Abigail & Lily Chapin), Emma's Revolution (a.k.a. Pat Humphries and Sandi O), Christine Lavin, Holly Near, Tom Paxton and Noel Paul Stookey. Special guests Nora Guthrie and Doug Mishkin added other highlights, as did our wonderful "house band" of Jon Cobert and Michael Mark.

It leaves me very nervous about how we can possibly top those incredible two hours when it comes time for our 50th birthday; meanwhile, I'm proud and pleased to have the show alive and well and living here in the WFUV Archives.

World Party - Live Concert - 2012

World Party has created some of the most melodic and meaningful songs since their start in 1986, and in this FUV Live broadcast from City Winery many of their best ones come to life. Karl Wallinger, backed by a duo of violin and guitar, was in great voice and chipper spirits. Joking with the crowd between songs and treating us to a set list of classics including "Put the Message in the Box," "Ship of Fools," "Is It Like Today" and my fave, "Sweet Soul Dream."
