Damien Rice (Episode #904H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Oct 31, 2017 -- 12:00 AM

Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice first achieved international success with the release of his debut album O in 2002. The album spent 10 weeks on the Billboard 200 charts and 80 weeks in the UK Top 75 album chart, and sold over 2 million copies worldwide. In 2004, Rice was nominated for both a BRIT Award and an NME Award, while in the United States, he became the first UK-signed artist ever to be awarded the prestigious Shortlist Music Prize. His sophomore record, 9, was equally critically acclaimed. In 2007, Damien was nominated for Best International Male at the BRIT Awards and also played a sold-out arena tour. His first collection of new material in eight years, My Favourite Faded Fantasy, will be released globally on November 10, 2014. Rice has also made notable contributions to civil rights campaigns worldwide, including the Freedom Campaign and Campaign for Burma.

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 28, 2017 -- 11:00 PM

Downtown Los Angeles' historic Mayan Theater provided a spectacular backdrop for Panic! At the Disco's taping of Live from the Artists Den. The LA-based band, led by frontman Brendon Urie, offered a boisterous performance highlighting material from their critically acclaimed new album Death of a Bachelor, which was released on January 15th via DCD2/Fueled By Ramen and debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Urie and crew revisited favorites like "Time To Dance" and "Nine In The Afternoon," as well as new tracks like "Victorious" and "Hallelujah." Five hundred of the band's fans filled the ornate theater, which was originally built in 1927, and lent their voices to the night's closing song and fan favorite, "I Write Sins Not Tragedies."

KQED Plus: Tue, Oct 24, 2017 -- 12:00 AM

Cage the Elephant brought their funky, soulfully psychedelic sound to the stage at the Santa Barbara Art Foundry Wednesday evening. The set, drawn mostly from last year's Melophobia album, was filmed at the gallery for an upcoming episode of Live from the Artists Den. Thriving off the energy of the crowd of 400 invited guests, frontman Matt Shultz delivered an epic performance in an intimate setting, hurling himself around the small space like a man possessed, while the rest of the band equaled his intensity. The evening ended with a shirtless Shultz held aloft by the cheering crowd, a triumphant exclamation point to an unforgettable night.

Alabama Shakes (Episode #902H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Oct 17, 2017 -- 12:00 AM

The Alabama Shakes delivered a crushingly electric set at the Loveless Barn, located directly behind Nashville's famous Loveless Cafe. The crowd of 500 cheered each song as the band delivered a thrillingly uninhibited show. The band dashed through blistering rockabilly boogies, eruptive country-soul ballads, and more from their 2012 debut album, Boys & Girls, and the collection of new material earmarked for a much anticipated follow-up. Front woman Brittany Howard testified to the deeply felt truths of the songs with ferocity, and her bandmates were with her all the way-gutsy, dynamic, and altogether riveting.

On a warm summer evening, multi-platinum country artist Zac Brown Band brought music back to the historic Forest Hills Stadium in Forest Hills, NY with a hit-filled set under the stars. The multi-talented band showed off its virtuosic skills, picking, fiddling, and harmonizing through such fan favorites as the Caribbean-inspired "Jump Right In" and lovelorn ballad "Sweet Annie" before donning glowing skeleton costumes to perform its rollicking new song, "Day For The Dead," from the 2013 EP, The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1, and sending the frenzied crowd home with a boisterous rendition of its breakout hit single, "Chicken Fried."

John Legend (Episode #1201H)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 1, 2017 -- 5:00 AM

John Legend celebrates the release of his new album, DARKNESS AND LIGHT, with an unforgettable performance at Manhattan's historic Riverside Church. From the same pulpit where, fifty years earlier, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered an electrifying "A Time To Break Silence" speech, Legend presents a magnificent set of brand new songs (many being played for the first time ever onstage) alongside such classics as "All Of Me" and "Glory," offering messages of love and hope in a spectacular setting that has been associated with progressive activism for almost a century. The concert is preceded by a provocative conversation between the ten-time Grammy winner, and the Atlantic magazine's national correspondent and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates.
