Live in Concert

Wye Oak In Concert

Wye Oak is just two people - Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack - but together they make fierce and arresting rock music, and give particularly memorable live performances. Wasner is on lead vocals and guitar, while Stack plays drums and keys. The band is currently on tour for its 2011 album Civilian, one of NPR Music's picks for the best of last year. In this performance, the group performed old favorites, with a few new surprises.
