Live From Pitchfork: Savages

SAVAGES

 

“The album is stunningly crafted,” declared Spin, of Savages’ Silence Yourself.  “Their influences (Joy Division’s mystic menace, Siouxsie Sioux’s gothic howls) are proudly worn on blackened sleeves, but rather than dance around such matters, they dance with them.”

We’re thrilled to have these talented ladies set to play Madison’s High Noon Saloon on September 18 (tickets here).  Videos like these from Pitchfork’s 2013 Festival make us confident that they’ll be worth the wait.   Check them out after the jump.

Live From Studio M: Greg Laswell, Cary Brothers, & Harper Blynn

Before bringing their melodic indie-pop songs to the High Noon on Wednesday night, Greg Laswell, Cary Brothers, and Harper Blynn all stopped by to see our friends at 105.5 Triple M and record one of their intimate Live From Studio M sessions.  Typically one artist or band will perform four tunes for the studio audience, but this time we were treated to a conglomeration of musicians entertaining at once, as each artist took a lead to display their songwriting prowess.

Video From A.A. Bondy At The High Noon Saloon (2.1.10)

For the last ten odd years I’ve been seeing Bondy perform in some context or another.  In the early days his grunge-rock band Verbena often lent support for one of my favorite bands, Local H.  Verbena transitioned into a short stint as The Alabama Boys Choir before Scott Bondy branched off on his own solo project, A.A. Bondy.  Last night A.A. Bondy brought his folk-inspired songs to the High Noon, and the intimate performance was nothing short of awe-inspiring.

What did you think of the performance last night?

Check out the video of the encore performance of “Black Rain, Black Rain” below!

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!
