Yesterday, the folks at You and Yours Productions--the same people who've brought you the two latest videos from The Burning Hotels--released the above footage of Telegraph Canyon performing at Bass Hall, opening for the Old 97's, from a few weeks back. It was a special night--and the clip, which boasts multiple angles and four songs of Telegraph Canyon's performance ("Old Dark Hymns," "All The Good News," "Spinning Wheels" and "Shake Your Fist"), only reinforces as much. Highly recommended watching.
Meanwhile, if you've got a few hours to kill, you might as well just peruse the whole live performance footage archives over at You and Yours, where you can find some pretty jaw-dropping footage of other local and touring acts that have stopped through The Fort in recent years--Fleet Foxes, Cold War Kids, Dan Deacon, Dr. Dog, The Quebe Sisters, Tim Locke and The King Bucks, among them. Just a whole bunch of really, really, ridiculously good-looking stuff over there.
