The new season of Live from the Artists Den marks the series' fifth year on public television and over 50 filmed television episodes. In celebration of these milestone achievements, a "5th Anniversary Special" closes the season, featuring highlights from throughout the series' history - from Ringo Starr's star-studded concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Adele's intimate acoustic performance in Santa Monica just days after the release of her record-breaking album, 21. Two-time Artists Den alumna Patty Griffin (who performed during the series' first season and again as a member of Robert Plant's "Band of Joy") hosts the episode.

Fitz & The Tantrums (Episode #705H)
KQED Plus: Sun, Jul 6, 2014 -- 11:00 PM
It was a sensation both familiar and brand new when Fitz & The Tantrums filmed a recent performance for public television's concert series Live from the Artists Den. The show marked a return to their home base for the beloved Los Angeles band, in a truly incredibly venue - the breathtaking Spanish Gothic-style Theatre at Ace Hotel, formerly the United Artists movie palace, built in downtown LA in the 1920s under the hands-on direction of Mary Pickford. Fitz & The Tantrums played its signature dance grooves - blending classic soul and '80s pop on such songs as the band's new single, "The Walker" - and, as always, refused to let the invited audience of 900 even think about sitting down.
