Live Performances from The Current

Sleep Study performs in The Current studios

Sleep Study

Sleep Study's craft comes in their songwriting, joining the ranks of other established lyricists in the Twin Cities like Chris Koza, Jeremy Messersmith and Adam Levy. Coupled with strong chemistry within the band and an updated '70s aesthetic as heard on their first single "Flower Girl," the group has been making waves since their formation last summer.

John Fullbright performs in The Current studio

John Fullbright

From the Ground Up: That's the title of Americana singer-songwriter John Fullbright's debut studio album, but it is also a fitting description of the path Fullbright's career has followed.

Spiritualized live at First Avenue

Jason Pierce

Spiritualized's appearance at First Avenue in May was the first in years, and a ravenous Twin Cities fanbase welcomed Jason Pierce and his band back with open arms. For those who missed it, The Current recorded and aired the entire show, and now we're able to provide it for you to stream online.

Sigur Ros Live From Celebrate Brooklyn

Sigur Ros

It's not hyperbolic to suggest that Sigur Ros is one of the world's greatest live bands, creating a hypnotic, almost overwhelming experience. Hear the group, back on tour after four years, as it plays a sweeping two-hour set at Brooklyn's Prospect Park Bandshell during Celebrate Brooklyn.

Dosh performs in The Current studios


Martin Dosh has been playing in the Twin Cities music community for years, penning his first solo album a decade ago. After a successful streak on Anticon Records and consistent touring with Andrew Bird, the multi-instrumentalist is planning to release new material at the beginning of 2013.

Best Coast perform in The Current studios

Best Coast

The sunny, surf rock band Best Coast burst onto the scene with a straightforward sound and simple lyrics. Their new album is a step-forward for the band's maturation - both in sound and perspective.

Soul Asylum performs in the UBS Forum

Soul Asylum

On the day of their sold-out show at the 7th St. Entry, Soul Asylum stopped by the UBS Forum to play a live set for Minnesota Public Radio employees and fans.

Electric Guest performs in The Current studios

Electric Guest

When Asa Taccone's brother told him to share some of the music he was working on to his friend Brian, Asa didn't think it would lead to much. But luckily for him Brian was working on other projects as Danger Mouse and liked the sound that Asa was putting together. Through Danger Mouse Asa met Matthew Compton and Electric Guest was formed.

Liars perform in The Current studios


Experimental rock trio Liars' career has been defined by nomadic wanderings, both geographically and sonically. Formed in L.A., the group relocated to Brooklyn, shed a few members and wound up in rural New Jersey, and eventually made their way to Berlin, before returning to L.A.
