Special: Vic Chesnutt Live

We've finally got the Vic Chesnutt video edited for you (sorry for the wait).

This is his Tiny Desk Concert, recorded live from Bob Boilen's desk here at NPR, on May 23. Vic is on tour for his latest album, North Star Deserter and was in D.C. for a show at the Black Cat. For this video he did five songs, including two entirely new ones: "Bottom" (new), "Very Friendly Lighthouses" (from Left to His Own Devices), "Panic Pure" (from West of Rome), "We Were Strolling Hand and Hand" (new), and "Glossolalia" (from North Star Deserter).

Nice guitar strap (now I don't feel so bad about mine -- shoestrings tied together).

Great show! Love the music -- thanks for doing this.

Thanks Vic. Please come back to Columbus or at least somewhere in Ohio. I wanted to come to Philly to see you with TSMZO, but, as you know, gas prices are a bitch. Now I'm filled with regret.

Vic is playing the best (tragically unknown) festival in Montreal... Suoni per il Popolo! You should go!

The best album of the year is by far and away the Foxboro Hotubs with the album Stop, Drop, and Roll. This band is Green Day performing garage band music. I first heard them courtesy of Little Steven's Underground garage on Sirius Satellite. Give this album a listen and you will not regret it.
