Watch Damien Tiny Desk Concert, March Tour Dates



When Damien Jurado was on tour this past fall with Shearwater, he stopped by the Washington, DC NPR Headquarters to perform a magnificent Tiny Desk concert, including Saint Bartlett stand outs “Cloudy Shoes,” “Arkansas” and “Beacon Hill” and the unreleased tune “Newspaper Gown.”

The All Songs Considered crew (who we found out are longtime Damien fans!) have always been able to capture the essence of a musician through this ongoing series, given the pure intimacy and simplicity. Stephen Thompson writes:

This one is special: Jurado has spent the last decade churning out albums of raw, time-worn, authentically graceful music, and he’s always possessed a seemingly innate gift for capturing the intricacies of human behavior.

We recently gave you the heads up on Damien’s forthcoming 10th LP and working with Richard Swift again. Damien Begins touring in March with Viva Voce, then supports John Vanderslice in May. All info on those dates and new recording can be found here.

We also have one more Damien news item we’d like to fill you in on: tonight’s episode of House will feature “Everything Trying.” We are told this is going to be a particularly heart-wrenching scene, as you could imagine if you’re familiar with the song.
