Help I’ve fallen in love with another amazing band
Lake Street Dive

I’ve been listening to this great band Lake Street Dive for the past couple of weeks. I’m really drawn to some straight up great music, and that’s what you get with this band. Some very talented musicians and great vocals! Anyway, I did this personal piece in the vain of a Rolling Stone record review. Enjoy! @lakestreetdive
Early afternoon concert break:
This is Lake Street Dive performing Jackson 5’s “I Want You back” in Boston. Today Ken Tucker reviews their new album Bad Self Portraits.
The quartet began performing together almost a decade ago while studying at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Recently, producer T Bone Burnett invited them to play at a concert in NYC featuring the music of the Coen Brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis.
“On a dreary summer afternoon in 2009, I met up with Lake Street Dive in a living room in Jamaica Plain. They were living in Boston at the time, filling up the Lizard Lounge and Toad and the more intimate rooms of the city every chance they got to give their take on “free country” a run for its money.”
Our pals at Bustle wrote this great piece about their favorite female acts from CMJ Music Marathon 2013. Lucius, above, is on the list - see you else made the cut and get listening!
Watch our brand new video for “Tempest”!
TUESDAY, MARCH 25 - 4:30pm ET / 1:30pm PT
These two Wildwomen blew everyone away at the Tumblr House during SXSW. On Tuesday, they plan to bring the excitement to Conan. Amidst rehearsal, wardrobe and makeup, they want to answer your best questions from the green room.
Austin —> Newport.
“He is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Bob Dylan called his song ‘Vietnam’ the greatest protest song he ever heard, and Springsteen regularly performs his song ‘Trapped.’ Jimmy Cliff is one of the great reggae songwriters and artists of our time. His role in The Harder They Come introduced reggae to the world, and he continues to bring a perfect combination of groove and message to audiences everywhere. His youthful looks and performance will surely get the reggae vibes blowing in the breeze at Fort Adams State Park.”
