Live Gig Video: Smoke Fairies’ videographer shares a film of the duo recording for Upstairs at United

By on Thursday, 18th April 2013 at 4:00 pm

There are plenty of fan-made live videos on the internet. But how often do you get a really nicely filmed and made short film like this by a videographer who fell in love with a support act while working for another? It’s not fantasy, this is the real-life story of how Luke Norby came to make this inside peek in Smoke Fairies‘ recording process during a very special event. The duo – Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies – were only the second artists ever to be invited to record for the Upstairs at United series in Nashville, and now you can catch all the action from October 2011 in this film. Watch it below.

By on Thursday, 9th February 2012 at 2:00 pm

Factory Floor was one of several big name performers at Fred Perry Subculture‘s opening launch party of Sub-Sonic Live last November (we gave away tickets to this event). If you are an unfortunate soul like myself and missed the event, we’ve got the band’s performance of ‘What You Say’ from the night. Enjoy it below.

GEMS, a live music showcase based in New York City, recently filmed the lovely Laura Marling performing ‘Night After Night’ solo and acoustically at the McKittrick Hotel in Chelsea. The song is from Marling’s latest ‘A Creature I Don’t Know’ (reviewed by Braden here). Watch it below.



Live Gig Video: The Static Jacks’ English tour set to ‘Drano-Ears’

By on Tuesday, 10th January 2012 at 2:00 pm

The Static Jacks were in England this past November (actually, they were in London when I was over there on holiday, but I unfortunately missed them) and they’ve committed this collection of clips into this video set to their tune ‘Drano-Ears’. It’s a little different than most gig videos we post (there is some gigging in here, I promise) but I thought it might be cool to look through an American band’s eyes of a tour of England.



Live Gig Video: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds play ‘AKA…What a Life’ for Conan O’Brien

By on Thursday, 5th January 2012 at 2:00 pm

Noel Gallagher and his touring band took to Conan O’Brien’s late night show in the States last month to play current single ‘AKA…What a Life’. Disappointingly, there was no accompanying interview (and therefore no ensuing Liam bashing), but the performance should get you warmed up if you got a highly prized ticket to one of Noel’s UK arena shows in February. (Tickets to his spring North American theatre dates are still available.)
