Not long ago, some folks from Great Scott approached us with an idea: they wanted to video some performances at the Allston rock club. So, we here at the Phoenix are pleased to debut the first of what we hope will be many LIVE AT GREAT SCOTT sessions! All video here has been shot and edited by Dustin Devlin, Matt Thompson, Fabian Perez, and Tracy Drane (who also serves as interviewer). And for their first session, they bring us pop buskers FREELANCE WHALES. Below, three more songs, two of which contain an interview segment afterwards. Apparently they're big fans of Boston (as in the band, who, for the record, are indeed from the city of the same name).
