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.

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."
