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).

In just a few short years, Los Angeles folk-rock act Dawes have become one of the most sought-after indie/alternative acts in the country, with their trademark emotive alt-country sound gaining them thousands of fans. Their new album Stories Don't End is due out April 9. Enjoy their performance from the Public Radio Rocks day stage.

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.
