Just came across these two clips of my favorite band (BeauSoleil) playing at my favorite record store, the Louisiana Music Factory. They are stellar as always. Michael Doucet and his mates are an American musical treasure. Sample a few songs off the Lafayette, Louisiana Cajun band’s latest fine offering Alligator Purse. By the way, if you’re ever in New Orleans, you really need to visit this record shop. It’s the place to find that needle in the haystack for Cajun, jazz and blues lovers. Plus, you may even get a free bottle of Abita, as they often are doing beer promotions there.

St. Vincent recently sat down for an unplugged performance with Lake Fever Productions. She claims to not own an acoustic guitar… scary way to start an unplugged performance, but she carries it off admirably.

The Defibulators are a New York group that manage to concoct convincing hillbilly music, or maybe it’s better labeled cowpunk. Anyway, the band is great fun and have a bunch of upcoming tour dates. Here’s a video of “DumDum” live at the Brooklyn Country Music Festival in 2008 as well as a player of four of their songs.

British indie rockers give us a live version of an Arcade Fire-esque “Love You Better” off the recently released in the UK Wall of Arms.
