As the world continues to work from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become the norm for websites to offer various archive live shows for entertainment. Radiohead have raided their archives and uploaded previously unavailable live sets. Other artists have released free music via Bandcamp to surprise their fans.
Few have put in as much effort as NPR. Today, the US website has made over 100 exclusive live shows from the 9:30 Club available to listen to FOR FREE. The website says “streaming”, but the audio for some of the shows are actually available for download!
It’s a goldmine for indie/alternative fans and collectors of archive live material, with shows from Dinosaur Jr., The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, Rilo Kiley and The New Pornographers among the featured acts.
You’ll also find shows by Son Volt, Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Polyphonic Spree and a whole lot more.
Don’t delay…as these might not be up for long!
You can access the full archive of free live shows here.
