Here’s video from The War on Drug’s excellent sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom on Sunday night. See a jammed out version of “Your Love is Calling My Name” > “The Animator,” as well as another take on the Dead’s “Touch of Grey.”

Real Estate ~ “Old Folks”

After a long and highly successful tour, Real Estate make their big homecoming tonight with a sold-out show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom. In honor of their return, we look back on this B-side track off their original lo fi 7″ for Underwater Peoples. If you haven’t already, be sure to pick up their “dope” new album Days.

Videos: Woods 8/13/11 Bowery Ballroom

A few weeks ago, we shared a 15 minute Woods jam from their August 13 performance at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. Today, we have three videos from that show for your viewing pleasure, courtesy of Ian Perlman. This was one of the more powerful performances I have seen this year, and, for those who were unable to attend (which I assume is most of you), these videos help to capture the energy that Woods brought to the stage that night.

A couple weeks back, Woods made their way across the bridge for a Woodsist family gathering at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. The highlight of the night came during a 15 minute jam tucked into the dark psych drones of “Bend Beyond” with Matt Mondanile (Real Estate/Ducktails) sitting in on drums. Here’s the recording, captured by NYC Taper.
