Gary Clarke Jr.

For Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. it was an emotional homecoming in the club he legitimately calls "home" - Austin's legendary "Home Of The Blues," Antone's Nightclub. Clark first played Antone's as a fifteen-year-old obsessed with blues history and now he's both one of the most respected and revered artists in blues and R&B, and in a full-circle move, a part-owner of the club's latest iteration.

Zac Brown Band

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.

Alabama Shakes

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.

Cage The Elephant

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.

Damien Rice

Damien Rice delivered an unforgettable performance at the Greenpoint Loft for his episode of Live from the Artists Den. The Irish singer-songwriter concentrated largely on material from his acclaimed new album My Favorite Faded Fantasy. While the concert-in an intimate, in-the-round setting on the top floor of a 19th century warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront, with a dazzling view of the Manhattan skyline-was mostly played solo, Rice thrilled the fans with a full choir backing him on "Trusty and True."
