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.


Arguably the coolest live-session blog on the planet films Fleet Foxes in a reverb-heavy church. In Paris.


A subdued, brilliant performance of "Mykonos" from Abbey Road in 2009.


Alone in Germany playing "Oliver James?" Sold.


The always great production values of Jools Holland, plus Fleet Foxes' closing track off Helplessness Blues.


The best track from their new album combined with the best track from their first album.


With friends Blitzen Trapper hiding on stage (with added percussion), the chorus of "Blue Ridge" Mountains" is explosive.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
