The Current helped to present the Public Radio Rocks day stage at the Austin Convention Center along with like-minded noncommercial stations KXT (Dallas), KUT (Austin), WFUV (New York), and XPN (Philadelphia).

Divine Fits is Britt Daniel, John Boeckner, Sam Brown and Alex Fischel. They joined forces from their individual bands (Spoon, Wolf Parade, New Bomb Turks) and delivered spectacularly on the album A Thing Called Divine Fits — one of 2012's best — and the live set is just as invigorating as the record.

Set List

My Love Is Real
Civilian Stripes
Flaggin a Ride
The Salton Sea

Please note: due to the difficulties and vagaries of recording and broadcasting live from a convention center with a bustling crowd, the quality of the recording may not be as high as what you've come to expect from The Current. It's still pretty good, though.
