Carrie & Lowell Live

Watch Sufjan Stevens’ Live Performance of Carrie & Lowell

And just in case you were wondering, there is a cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling​.”
Arcade Fire Live Earls Court

Watch Arcade Fire’s 2014 Performance of “Reflektor” at London’s Earls Court

It’s one of the best Arcade Fire songs to date — and a nice tease for their upcoming concert film.
July Skies (Band)

July Skies in Concert (Cafe Oto, London, June 4, 2016)

Antony Harding’s ephemeral music holds up pretty well in a live setting.
The Cure (2016)

The Cure Revealed Two New Songs on Their New Tour

I daresay they’re some of the best material The Cure has produced in quite some time.
Sleep Experiments Sofar Concert

Watch Pittsburgh’s Sleep Experiments Perform an Unrecorded Song

Hopefully, this performance is a sign that new things are coming from the trio; it’s been far too long.

Ride Reunited

The shoegaze reunions continue with this stripped down acoustic performance.

Mew in Concert

Concert Review: Mew & Oh No! Oh My! (March 27, 2007, Lincoln, NE)

Mew put on a show that was, for lack of any better superlatives, mind-blowing.
Sufjan Stevens 20050920

Concert Review: Sufjan Stevens & Liz Janes (September 20, 2005, Omaha, NE)

It felt so refreshing to see a band perform that was so absolutely devoid of irony and hipster chic.
mewithoutYou 20050612

Concert Review: mewithoutYou & Make Believe (June 12, 2005, Omaha, NE)

In concert, these songs become absolute maelstroms, as the band handily moves past their punk comparisons and launches right into the stratosphere with ear-shredding noise.
