A first impression of Diarrhea Planet is likely going to be four guitarists at the front of the stage: "Wow — that's a lot of guitars." And also the intentionally obnoxious name. Onstage, they start songs with volleys of hooks and distortion, not so much counting in a tune as launching it into the crowd. In this performance from the Woods Stage at Pickathon, they play "Spooners."

The Nashville six-piece has released two albums and several EPs, including last year's Aliens in the Outfield. The song "Spooners" will appear on a vinyl-only Record Store Day release (April 18) featuring live Pickathon sets from Diarrhea Planet and Those Darlins. If you're in Austin this week, you can see Diarrhea Planet play a pair of shows at SXSW.

Each month through the start of the 2015 Pickathon festival, opbmusic and NPR Music premiere another video recorded at the Woods Stage, handpicked by opbmusic to show some of the most exciting performances from last summer's lineup. The next premiere will be on April 21.
