According to Rolling Stone, not only do Of Monsters and Men “make whimsical sound tough,” but they also “put muscle behind their prettiness, turning songs from cute to grand.” And when the Icelandic six-piece came to Brooklyn to have their show streamed live from Music Hall of Williamsburg last spring, vocalists Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar Þórhallsson hit the venue’s roof to do a quiet, acoustic take on “Love Love Love” exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube.

Friday night’s Grouplove show at Terminal 5 remains on schedule, as planned, but due to Hurricane Sandy’s massive impact on the New York City metro area, we regret to announce the performance will no longer stream live on The Bowery Presents Livechannel on YouTube. Unfortunately, the staffing and technological infrastructure that’s necessary to produce the live stream cannot be assembled for Friday night’s show, given the severe and necessary restrictions on vehicular traffic and public transportation.
Tonight’s Squarepusher show at Terminal 5 is also going ahead, as planned. Music Hall of Williamsburg is completely open for business, featuring all scheduled shows. For those planning to attend our venues and concerts in person, please travel safely. And follow @BoweryPresents on Twitter and facebook.com/bowerypresents for the most up-to-date concert info for all upcoming performances.
Apart from his sterling work as frontman for rock stalwarts Spoon, Britt Daniel “wanted to try some new things and go some places I hadn’t gone before.” So he teamed up with Wolf Parade guitarist Dan Boeckner and New Bomb Turks drummer Sam Brown to form Divine Fits. Joined by Alex Fischel on keys, the foursome crafted A Thing Called Divine Fits, which Rolling Stone calls “their psychedelic, synth-heavy LP.” Here, the band plays “Civilian Stripes” exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube.
In a room at New York City’s Ace Hotel, the guys in Divine Fits discuss the music their family listened to, meeting one another and when they knew the band would be just fine.

Philly rockers Circa Survive have truly embraced the indie spirit, self-producing and self-releasing their newest album, the acclaimed Violent Waves. The Alternative Press calls it “strong and focused, creatively fierce and yet cohesive” despite the pressure the band’s taken on. According to Rolling Stone, “Sharp Practice,” the album’s first single, “packs a slinky guitar progression that grooves in and out behind frontman Anthony Green’s howling vocals.” And that comes through even in this stripped-down, acoustic performance in a tattoo parlor done exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube.
Also, the band talked about listening to Metallica and Tool as kids and how, in self-financing and self-producing their new album, they learned to take creative compromise a step further and to work together in a more constructive way. Watch the interview.
