INFINITE ARMS NOMINATED FOR BEST ALTERNATIVE MUSIC ALBUM GRAMMY
Birdsmell & Friends Featuring Ben Bridwell Playing Dec. 10 Benefit for the Andy Kotowicz Family Foundation
Band of Horses’ Austin City Limits TV performance, taped in October the weekend the band appeared at the ACL Festival, has been confirmed for a January 15, 2011 airdate on PBS (check local listings at http://austincitylimits.org/).
The performance culls material from all three of Band of Horses’ records, Cease To Begin, Everything All The Time and this year’s Infinite Arms, recently nominated for a Grammy in the Best Alternative Music Album category. The epic set captured the grandeur and sweep of the Band of Horses live experience in the unique and intimate setting of one of the final episodes to be recorded at the the original ACL soundstage.
On the immediate horizon, Birdsmell and Friends featuring Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses will play a very special benefit show at the Pour House in Charleston SC on December 10 with proceeds going to the Andy Kotowicz Family Foundation. Kotowicz, a friend and professional colleague of the band’s from their Sub Pop tenure, was tragically killed in an October 21 car accident that his young daughter survived. Birdsmell and Friends will perform songs old and new at the benefit and special guest Holopaw will open. Tickets are $25 and available at:
