The Six Best Fleet Foxes Concert Videos on YouTube
Fresh off climbing Billboard's charts -- and, y'know, selling a planet-size chunk of records -- Fleet Foxes will be stopping by Dallas tomorrow night. Like you didn't already know.
But here's something you might not be aware of: Tonight at 8:30 p.m., NPR is live-webcasting a full Fleet Foxes show from Stubb's Barbecue in Austin.
It's definitely a must-stop for fans who won't be able to catch them tomorrow at the Palladium Ballroom. And maybe even those who are planning on doing so; certainly, it'll be a nice primer for tomorrow night.
Fans who've already seen the Foxes live will probably agree: The band is a much better experience when seen up close and personal. The harmonies explode (see drummer J. Tillman's incredible voice) and the band's sound is impossibly succinct and bright.
To prove this point, we've culled our favorite live videos across the YouTubes -- including some cuts from their newest album Helplessness Blues -- and posted them after the jump Enjoy.
