You should notice a theme with all of today’s videos…

Surfer Blood – “Catholic Pagans” – A live performance in a cramped bathroom from the Palm Beach, FL band.

Fanfarlo – “We Live by the Lake” – Been a while since I posted a Black Cab Session, but here’s an older session from Fanfarlo.

The Avett Brothers – “Will You Return” – With a bunch of friends on the back of a bus. It really gets going at the 1:41 mark. From the YouTube description:

Tim Nackashi directed our live from-the-bus version of ‘Will You Return’ while we were stopped off in Anaheim, CA. We piled as many people into the back of the bus as possible. Things got appropriately crazy.. Thanks for watching and listening!
