AltarTV is a quality music site that features videos of live concerts, acoustic sessions, and interviews.

AltarTV’s video of First Aid Kit playing “Emmylou” for its Live At The Show series is the best live version of that song I’ve ever seen:

First time seeing First Aid Kit live, and it didn’t disappoint!

First Aid Kit played to a packed house at Irving Plaza on Saturday (and they play Sunday at Music Hall of Williamsburg).

Mike Mogis, the “Dr. Dre of indie rock” as Klara introduced him, was a special guest who sat in with the band and played mandolin.

“Blue” sounded particularly good live, and First Aid Kit played “Ghost Town” completely acoustic – with no microphones or amplification – in the middle of their set.

The audience responded well to “The Lion’s Roar” and the band’s latest single “Wolf,” but technical difficulties with Johanna’s keyboard messed up a few songs. I wish they played “Emmylou”  with drums instead of acoustically — the drums are really necessary to drive the song.

Their last song was the rousing, hand-clapping “King of The World.”

First Aid Kit: “Emmylou”

“Emmylou” is a new song (not yet released) by First Aid Kit.

The chorus is cool because it references the country musicians Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, and June Carter Cash.
