Hear The Latest From Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

BRMC

The first single from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club‘s forthcoming album, Beat The Devil’s Tattoo, is now available for you to drool over.  Just when you thought their impossibly cool gothic psychedelia couldn’t get any more addictive, they went and dropped this on us. Unreal.  Listen to the steam here.

Get tickets to see them live in Madison on March 24th with Band Of Skulls before they’re sold out.  This show is going to be massive.

Pics and Video From Our Recent Bowerbirds Show At The High Noon Saloon

Bowerbirds

As just about anyone who populated the High Noon Saloon last Sunday night can attest, the sweetly soulful, mellow sounds of Bowerbirds in a live setting are nothing short of spectacular.  The North Carolina-based indie folk headliners were not, however, the only band who successfully mesmerized the eager ears of the audience.  Performances by opening acts Peter Wolf Crier and Sharon Van Etten no doubt earned the respective artists a great many new fans as well.

We’d like to share a few still photos (by Shelley Peckham) and live video (from Justin Kibbel) to remember the night by, as well as a link to listen to the full album stream of Peter Wolf Crier’s latest release, Inter-Be. Enjoy!

(FYI: If you dig Fool’s Gold, you may be interested to know that the band includes several members of the equally impressive Foreign Born, who we’ll be bringing to Madison to play The Frequency on March 4th.  You can grab tickets to that show here.)
