New season of Live from the Artists Den

The seventh season of Live from the Artists Den has started running nationwide on public television (check local listings). The music series presents musicians performing in unique and historic venues.

Episode 1 is from French rock band Phoenix, performing at a high school in Austin, TX. Performing at a high school was particularly meaningful for the band. "When you tour in the United States, a lot of the shows are for [people] 21 and over," frontman Thomas Mars said, explaining the band's decision. "We, as teenagers, wouldn't have started a band if we hadn't seen a show when we were 10 or 12."
This season marks the series' fifth year on public television and over 50 filmed television episodes. In celebration of these achievements, a "Fifth Anniversary Special" will close the season, featuring highlights from throughout the series' history - from Ringo Starr's star-studded concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Adele's intimate acoustic performance in Santa Monica just days after the release of her record-breaking album, 21.
