Lake Street Dive: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

2 740 Weergaven 275K

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit - stripped-down sets, an intimate setting - just a different space.
Josh Rogosin | April 27, 2021
Lake Street Dive filmed its Tiny Desk (home) concert where the band is most at home: on stage at the “biggest little venue in NYC,” Pete’s Candy Store. All five band members managed to squeeze onto a stage no larger than the actual Tiny Desk to shine a spotlight on the Save Our Stages Act. Congress passed the $15 billion grant program last December as part of the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill. In the middle of the home concert, bassist Bridget Kearney recalls driving to the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn for a gig at Pete’s, then driving back to Boston the very same night, long before they ever sold out Radio City Music Hall on the other side of the East River.
It’s hard to believe the band has released seven studio albums. Its latest, Obviously, provided the setlist for this intimate performance and prominently features the newest member and co-songwriter, keyboard and vocalist Akie Bermiss. Hopefully we’ll all be packed into tight venues again soon, adding the thunderous applause we’re all yearning to contribute. Until then, we’ll just have to settle for clapping at our screens.

    I tend to find NPR versions better than albums as they have so much more energy. But this one is insane! Case in point Anymore. This NPR version is unbelievably good, every single band member is outstanding. Yet the album version sounds cheap (where did the amazing drummer go??) and lacklustre. What are people doing doing in studios?? Just do what you do at NPR and get the same sound guy. Please!

    Lake Street Dive has talent for days. Immeasurable! It just doesn't translate to studio album productions. Live recordings are the best and I've seen them live even more impressed. Always love what they give.

    An earlier Tiny Desk performance was one of the videos that got me into LSD in the first place. This one is just icing on the cake now that I'm a longtime fan. Great show as always.

    Hypotheticals: This song was likely inspired by Jeanna Lee Steinmann of the FBI, who is stalking me. I find the lyrics abhorrent and the song an offense. DH of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Will be reporting to both CIA, DARPA and German Intel. No joke.

      Another friend, Sara, is represented in the band's song Sarah. She agrees with this statement and as a university professor, is not a gullible person. Jeanna works in Brooklyn Center, MN for the FBI. Please see video of officer Kim Potter murdering Duante Wright of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.

    I was watching Marvel Superheroes vs Street Fighter matches when I had dozed off, and have no idea how autoplay led me here, considering I wasn't even logged in. Let me tell you, the first track on this video woke me up faster than any fire alarm, explosion, or drill sargent ever could. How have I never heard of LSD before now?! I'm blaming all of you out there in NLlike land.

    I wish Tiny Desk would just charge us $5 to watch these concerts versus monetizing the videos. The ads interrupting every 2 mins are so disruptive to the experience that Tiny Desk is meant to be, in my opinion as a longtime fan!

    Finally a current tiny desk that is authentically stripped down. I've been increasingly disappointed with the effects laden videos folks have been passing off as "tiny desk." Kudos to Lake Street Dive for putting their sound and souls plainly on their sleeves for us to enjoy. The world needs more like this.
