The New Pornographers stopped in NYC earlier this week before heading to England for a few shows. I missed the opener—Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, but The New Pornographers put on a solid 2-hour show. I don’t have their most recent album Together, but having listened to their older albums quite a lot, it was […]


Unfortunately I missed The New Pornographers most recent stop in NYC on their current tour, but I realized that NPR has a full concert download from their sold out June show at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club.
