WATCH: The War On Drugs Cover The Waterboys

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve seen some pretty big performances from The War On Drugs. Whether it’s been Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Primavera or any of the other summer festivals, TWOD have proved no stage is too big for these dudes to conquer. Today, KEXP takes us on a different route, capturing Adam and Dave in quite a special number. Set in the woods of the Pendarvis farm during Pickathon, they offer a stripped down version of The Waterboys’ “A Pagan Place”. Watch above. ***Keep watching after the credits.

Damien Jurado Performs For The Pumphouse Sessions at Pickathon 2011

Damien Jurado – To Be Sold from Live & Breathing on Vimeo.

Pickathon started as a small, rootsy festival in the countryside outside Portland, OR, but has grown into so much more. The festival’s crowds keep growing every year and the line ups get better and better. This past summer, Live and Breathing set up a small studio in the back woods of the festival’s grounds and recorded the Pumphouse Sessions, a series of stripped down sets from performers at the festival. Damien Jurado recorded one with the group and it came out absolutley perfect. Check out the video now and stay tuned for his next album, Maraqopa, out February 21. Also be sure to catch Damien on tour in Europe (and Seattle) this spring!
