Relying on a mix of some freshman effort favorites and sophomore album standouts, Schneider and co. got the River Stage crowd to their feet and dancing as soon as their first note hit the airwaves.

Today’s Free At Noon concert featured folk rockers Lord Huron. The LA natives climbed on stage to a packed house downstairs at World Cafe Live. Frontman Ben Schneider remarked that they may be looking funny with just the four of them seated across the stage, explaining that their bus had broken down in New York earlier that day so they had grabbed what they could and made off for Philly. “We couldn’t miss World Cafe,” he said.

Los Angeles dream-folk outfit Lord Huron has announced a headlining date at The TLA on February 8th. The mystical and majestic band made its Philadelphia debut almost one year ago during the release of its debut LP Lonesome Dreams and has been back several times since, recording a World Cafe session, playing this summer’s XPoNential Music Festival and most recently supporting Alt-J a few weeks ago. Tickets for the all-ages show go on sale October 4th at noon via Live Nation. More information will be available here. Watch Lord Huron’s video for “Lonesome Dreams” below and read an interview with frontman Ben Schneider here.
British psych-pop outfit Alt-J have added a Philadelphia date to their fall tour, playing the Electric Factory on September 17th. Since releasing their debut full-length An Awesome Wave last year Alt-J have achieved a swell of success, winning the Mercury Prize and playing to exponentially-increasing crowds (Johnny Brenda’s less than a year ago, Lollapalooza yesterday). They’ll be joined by Lord Huron, the misty-eyed Americana project of Ben Schneider that won over the hearts of XPoNential-goers just a week ago. Tickets and information for the show will be available here. Below, watch Alt-J perform “Matilda” and “Dissolve Me” for La Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows, followed by Lord Huron’s video for “Lonesome Dreams.”
