Happy Almost Weekend // Damien Jurado Performs “Museum of Flight” & “Working Titles” Live for Last Call With Carson Daly


Earlier this year, Damien Jurado headlined Last Call with Carson Daly’s “Write The Night,” an event showcasing singer-songwriters performing acoustic sets at Los Angeles’s Troubador. We have the first two televised songs from Damien’s set. Watch Maraqopa‘s “Working Titles” and “Museum of Flight” above!

Oh and just because we like you (a lot), we’ll share a secret. Damien is currently working on the follow-up to Maraqopa. Where exactly is he doing this? You know – just at Richard Swift’s National Freedom studio, which can only mean Swifty is acting as both engineer and collaborator. Enjoy that bit of news as you head into your weekend…

WATCH: Damien Jurado Live at WBEZ, On Tour Now


Damien Jurado returned to Chicago’s WBEZ a few days ago for an in-studio performance before playing a SOLD OUT show at Schuba’s later that night! You might have heard Damien on the show back in 2010, playing in support of Saint Bartlett. He chats it up with host Andrew Gill and plays a few songs as well. You can download the entire show HERE and watch him play “Working Titles” and “Museum of Flight,” both off of 2012′s Maraqopa, above.

Damien is currently on tour. He’ll play Somerville tonight and ANOTHER SOLD OUT show at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday! When previewing the show, The New York Times writes, “A snarling hard-core punk turned diligently bleeding heart, Mr. Jurado is a folk singer-songwriter with rare delicacy and resilience. His 10th studio album, Maraqopa (Secretly Canadian), is his most intriguing yet: acidly psychedelic and uneasily introspective, it even dips a toe into lush Wall of Sound pop (“Reel to Reel”).” Check all tour dates HERE.

Damien Jurado Performs Two Songs off New Album for i-D Magazine

In this new i-N session, Damien Jurado performs “Museum of Flight” and “So On, Nevada” off of his soon-to-be-released album, Maraqopa. It’s Damien as we know him best; no frills, just man and his guitar. i-D Magazine writes,“Incredibly capable of creating music of varying art forms, from rock and roll to country, he is the unsung, underground acoustic artist of our generation.” We couldn’t have said it better.

Out on February 21st, you can pre-order Maraqopa now.
