KQED Plus: Thu, Aug 29, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

The soaring, majestic Drill Hall in New York's historic Park Avenue Armory provided an awe-inspiring setting for the National's taping for "Live from the Artists Den." The massive space, designed to resemble a classic European train station, hosted a special performance by the Brooklyn-based band, augmented by horns and a string sections. The blistering set featured the debut of numerous songs from the Brooklyn-based band's new album, "Trouble Will Find Me, " along with electrifying versions of such favorites as "Fake Empire, " "Bloodbuzz Ohio," and "Terrible Love."

Ed Sheeran (Episode #604H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Aug 22, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

At the historic meeting house of the New York Society for Ethical Culture on Manhattan's Upper West Side, Ed Sheeran needed little more than his voice and a guitar to whip a crowd of 700 fervent fans into a frenzy or hush them into enraptured silence. The rising British star bounded effortlessly from the hip-hop infused pop of "Lego House, " the latest single from his acclaimed debut album +, to sweetly crooned ballads. The surprises continued throughout Sheeran's energetic set, as he unveiled the rarely-performed, previously unrecorded fan favorite "We Are" before sending an ecstatic audience home with his Grammy-nominated hit single, "The A Team."
