Alabama Shakes (#902H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG

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.

Cage The Elephant (#903H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG

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.

Panic! at the Disco (#1101H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG

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."

The celebrated El Rey Theatre in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles hosted an intimate hometown show by alt-rockers Young the Giant. Five hundred and fifty of the band's lucky fans filled the former movie theater turned music venue originally built in 1936. The band opened their delightful 15-song set with their exhilarating new single "Something to Believe In," currently ascending to the Top 10 at Alternative radio. Fans were thrilled to hear older favorites such as "My Body," "Cough Syrup," and "Mind Over Matter." The crowd was also treated to two more songs, "Jungle Youth" and "Titus Was Born"- both being played for the first time live - from Young the Giant's new album Home of the Strange, which debuted at #6 on Billboard's Top Albums chart upon its release last month.

Sturgill Simpson (#1103H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG

The Broad Street Ballroom, an architectural landmark in New York's Wall Street district, provided the perfect backdrop for a riveting performance by musical visionary Sturgill Simpson. A massive mural depicting the history of seafaring wraps around the entire room, echoing the central concept of Simpson's acclaimed new album A Sailor's Guide to Earth, which he played in full for an ecstatic crowd of 400 winners and invited guests. Backed by a powerful horn section, Sturgill reconfigured the arrangements for songs from his breakthrough album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, and even delivered an emotional version of the soul classic "You Don't Miss Your Water" to round out an unforgettable night.

The Lumineers (#1104H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG

Americana superstars The Lumineers returned to their former neighborhood of Brooklyn for an unforgettable taping of Live from the Artists Den at the majestic Kings Theatre. The band performed an 18-song set for ticket winners and guests, split evenly between songs from their Grammy-nominated 2012 debut and its Number One-charting follow-up, Cleopatra (plus a riveting unreleased song, "Long Way From Home," played solo by lead singer Wesley Schultz). The ornate, magnificent theater-built in 1929 and recently restored to its initial glory-provided a breathtaking setting for a night full of great moments, from an unamplified version of "Darlene" to a rousing rendition of the Lumineers' breakthrough smash "Ho Hey."
