Live Performances of the Day

It’s one of those Wednesdays that really should just be a Friday (something all summer Wednesdays have in common). Yet, even as the week drips by, there’s always some live music to bring us back to the weekend for a few minutes at a time.

Today’s top live performances include Beirut playing at the newly renamed 50 Kent, Ben Folds joining Sir Elton for a rendition of “Grey Seal,” a streaming Future Islands set from when their buzz reached a breaking point, and a bonus video of SNL cast member Vanessa Bayers messing around with TV on the Radio. Enjoy.

Beirut – “Rumeli”
