Published May 03, 2011Between My Morning Jacket's announcement of their new album, Circuital, some tour dates and their Roll Call fanclub, we didn't think we could get any more stoked about the band, but we were wrong. On top of all these treats, the Kentucky rockers have another gift to give: an upcoming live webcast.
The Louisville Palace Theatre in the band's hometown of Louisville, KY will host the troupe on May 31, which happens to be Circuital's release date, for a live webcast brought to you by American Express and Vevo. The show is part of the ongoing Unstaged series, which pairs bands with well-known directors. My Morning jacket's webcast will be directed by Todd Haynes (Velvet Goldmine, I'm Not There). Previous instalments paired Arcade Fire with Terry Gilliam, John Legend and the Roots with Spike Lee, and Duran Duran with David Lynch.
My Morning Jacket are no strangers to Haynes. Leader Jim James is featured in the Bob Dylan-saluting I'm Not There, performing "Goin' to Acapulco."
The concert will start at 9 p.m. EST on May 31 and can be streamed on My Morning Jacket's Vevo page.
Thanks to the New York Times for the tip.
