XPN Welcomes Seattle Americana rockers Band of Horses to the Electric Factory tonight. The band’s fourth studio album, Mirage Rock, was released in September, this time with a fresh approach to meticulously recording everything live to tape. The band has undergone several member swaps since the release of 2004′s Everything All The Time, but currently tours as a five-piece fronted by Ben Bridwell. Tickets to tonight’s all-ages show can be found on our concert calendar here; the performance starts at 8:30. Watch the video for “Knock, Knock” from Mirage Rock below.
