im an ABSOLUTE sucker for these LIVE PERFORMANCE series distributed on YOUTUBE and sponsored by everyone from INSTRUMENT MANUFACTURERS, TELEVISION PROGRAMS, RECORD LABELS, CONCERT VENUES to even LOCAL RADIO STATIONS. in the mold of SEATTLE's KEXP 90.3FM i recently came across CENTRAL OHIO's CD 102.5FM (now apparently 92.9FM) out of COLUMBUS and their ongoing LIVE FROM THE BIG ROOM series of LIVE MUSIC performances by EMERGING and ESTABLISHED ALTERNATIVE ROCK and INDIE ROCK artists. past NOTABLE participants include THE JOY FORMIDABLE, LAURA JANE GRACE, THE KILLS, ARCTIC MONKEYS, CSS, THE BETHS and SURFER BLOOD among many others.
the sound mix isnt as professional as KEXP, which is the gold standard, but these performances are definitely IMPASSIONED and most definitely worth checking out.

FROM THE BASEMENT was a live performance series produced by NIGEL GODRICH (RADIOHEAD, ROGER WATERS, R.E.M., BECK) that lasted two seasons and aired intermittently on SKY TV from 2006 to 2009. shot and recorded without an audience, the bare studio room was an open canvas for the artists and directors, including SOPHIE MULLER, to present their music in manner they more or less had control over.
notable performances include those by PJ HARVEY, THE FALL, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, THUNDERCAT, THE KILLS, RADIOHEAD, WARPAINT, CSS, SONIC YOUTH, FLEET FOXES, SPARKS, THE WHITE STRIPES and JARVIS COCKER.
definitely worth checking out, especially for the quality of the live mixes, which honestly is a bit of a forgotten and under-appreciated art. enjoy.
