NPR Music will present and webcast a "First Listen Live" concert from Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band on Monday, March 4, beginning at 8 p.m. ET in the intimate New York City venue (Le) Poisson Rouge. Josh Ritter and his band will play most of his new album, The Beast in Its Tracks. The performance, which you'll be able to watch and hear online here and in the NPR Music mobile apps, comes a day before the album's official release. We'll also archive the performance afterward.
Before all of this, you can hear the entire Josh Ritter album as part of NPR Music's First Listen series, starting on Monday, Feb. 25.
I'll host the live show with Rita Houston of NPR member station WFUV, and a version of the concert will be archived for later viewing at NPR Music. Check local listings for more stations airing the show. And find Josh Ritter on tour here.
