VAMPIRE WEEKEND don't do a ton of these, but prior to headlining the Orpheum last week, they stopped by Woodward at the Ames Hotel to play a quick, mostly-unplugged set for a select few lucky WFNX listeners. Ezra had a cold, so they only did three songs: the new "White Sky" off Contra, plus "I Stand Corrected" and "A-Punk" from their debut.
When SILVERSUN PICKUPS came through town with Muse over the weekend, they stopped by to record an AMES HOTEL ACOUSTIC SESSION to a small parlor-full of WFNX fans. For this one, we moved out of the corner suite seen in our Tegan and Sara shoot, and moved on up to the second-floor Woodward bar to give the band more room to stretch out.
Our sister station WFNX scored an exclusive living-room-style acoustic show with TEGAN AND SARA, who stopped by the Ames Hotel in Boston on Saturday before their Orpheum Theater gig. The sisters played for an audience of about 20 listeners (and us) -- but fear not, if you weren't among the winners, we've got video right here.
