Saint Motel, a LA-based quartet (plus their intern turned saxophonist), stopped by our Austin, TX office today for an intimate acoustic performance for our Music Designers and employees. Their short set consisted of songs from their debut album, Voyeur, including “Feed Me Now,” “At Least I Have Nothing” and “Daydream / Wetdream / Nightmare” (which they’d never performed acoustic before). They also treated us to a lively performance of Del Shannon’s “Runaway.”
Gathered around the band in our lobby, a group of about 75 employees sang, clapped, and danced. It was one of our most well-attended sessions and you could tell the crowd was loving it. After the performance, the band handed out copies of the album…which went like hotcakes.
Watch Saint Motel’s incredibly entertaining video (that kid can DANCE) for “Benny Goodman” below.
Saint Motel has toured with everyone from Imagine Dragons to Nico Vega to Hockey to Band Of Skulls, and is currently on tour across North America. Austinites can catch the band tonight at Red 7. Check the band’s site for dates in your area. It’s guaranteed to be a fun, energetic show.
Stay tuned for much more from Saint Motel.
