Cage The Elephant
If nothing else, Cage The Elephant deserve to be enshrined when somebody eventually puts together a Nuggets compilation of '00s garage-rock one-hit wonders. Their yelp-talked signature song -- one of the most addictive rock-radio singles of 2008 -- is "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked," a more-or-less blatant White Stripes rip about the necessity for both legal and criminal persistence in late-capitalist America. ("I got bills to pay/ I got mouths to feed/ There ain't nothin' in this world for free.") The song reached No. 83 on Billboard's Hot 100 and the Top 40 in England (where the group actually first broke through). It was the third single off the self-titled debut album of the five-member band from Bowling Green, Ky. Subsequent singles "Back Against The Wall" and "In One Ear," then "Shake Me Down" from their more varied 2011 follow-up Thank You, Happy Birthday, made Cage The Elephant fixtures near the top of alt-rock tallies. They added a chipper jolt of punk energy -- alternately spiced with ska, surf, blues and funk -- to playlists often overrun by dreary emo and post-grunge.

Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel
Runtime: 14 minNineteen-year-old British singer-songwriter Jake Bugg is a man of few words, that is until he begins his strumming. His unique voice is one that finds few, yet highly admirable comparisons - perhaps a rockabilly-folk twangy twist of The Mountain Goats' John Darnielle and Colin Meloy of the Decemberists. The release of his self-titled, full-length debut last October sent a sonic shockwave through the music world with songs like the feverishly hooking foot-pounder "Lightning Bolt" and the howling 60s rock sing-along "Two Fingers".
Jake took the stage late one evening at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, where he roared through his catalog of catchy hits for an rock-hungry crowd. And we were there to catch the solid solo kid in action.
Live at Earl’s Court: The Reflektor Tapes

After a long break, 2017 marks the release of a second, long-waited, album "Blossom". And, for the public, finally the occasion to discover live these new compositions, mixing rock, folk and electro pop. With reggae vibrations that can rub shoulders with house elements, Milky Chance has one of the most singular sounds. With the presence of musicians on stage, and if we believe the listening of the new record, we can expect more electric concerts, more electronic and even more energetic than in the past!

Live at the Crystal Ballroom
The Black Keys
Runtime: 1 hr 4 minThe Black Keys' new concert film, Live at the Crystal Ballroom, reflects the no-frills genius of the drums-and-guitar duo's studio sound: It's a refreshingly straightforward video document of their April 4, 2008 sold-out gig at Portland, Oregon's Crystal Ballroom, featuring seventeen songs culled from all five of the pair's albums. Director Lance Bangs - who has made videos for the Arcade Fire, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sonic Youth as well as directing R.E.M.'s Road Movie - keeps his small camera crew focused on the stage, getting up close and sweaty with guitarist-singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney. Occasionally, he'll pull back to acknowledge the head-bobbing crowd pressed close to the stage, their hands reaching out to Auerbach. There are no visual pyrotechnics, no elaborate editing, no backstage cutaways, yet the show is riveting from start to finish and the feel of the music in that room is nothing less than triumphant.
Live at the O2
Runtime: 1 hr 48 minFilmed in high definition at London’s renowned O2 Arena on December 15th, 2011. The show came on the back of the band’s No.1 album “Velociraptor!” and the setlist combines tracks from that album with hits and classic album tracks from across their career so far. The concert was part of a sold out arena tour that covered the UK and Ireland at the end of last year. Kasabian are the recipients of numerous awards for “Best Live Band” and “Best British Band” in recent years and this new show with its spectacular and innovative staging will be a must have for their huge and dedicated fanbase.

Live At V Festival 2009
Runtime: 1 hr 23 minThe Killers are seen as one of the biggest rock bands of the 21st century, and the most successful rock band to ever emerge from the state of Nevada, having sold an estimated 22 million records worldwide. They have also achieved worldwide success as a live band, performing in over 50 countries and on six continents, headlining venues such as Madison Square Garden and Wembley Stadium. The band’s live performance at the V Festival in 2009 is a must-see for all music appreciators.
A Session With Foals
Runtime: 12 minBeing from the rain-ridden lands of England, Foals are used to a different kind of festival environment: generally speaking, frontman Yannis Philippakis described them as "mud and wellies" ordeals. So we're sure they were quite pleased to travel halfway around the world to the California desert to perform for Coachella's music-hungry crowds. Prior to taking to the stage in Indio, however, Foals made a pit stop at our little poolside bungalow to perform a Festival Fever Session featuring songs off their highly-acclaimed, recent full-length Holy Fire. While you might have already seen the band's in-the-flesh transformation of "My Number" into a slow-burning beaut, we've expanded the session to include the subtle closer "Moon".
Live at The Regency Ballroom
Cold War Kids
Runtime: 1 hr 16 minIf there is one thing Cold War Kids have taught us it's never judge a book by its cover - or a band by its name. The Californian indie rockers performed a slick, soulful, grown-up set at Regency Ballroom in support in support of "Dear Miss Lonelyhearts." Dipping into newer tracks such as rollicking electro stomper 'Miracle Mile' and raw renditions of fan favourites like 'We Used To Vacation' and 'Hang Me Up To Dry', the Kids showed us they are more than capable of putting on a phenomenal live performance that can keep everyone in the house rocking until the final minute.
