The Wytches - FUV Live - 2014

by Eric Holland

When Kristian Bell tested his microphone before our interview he said, "We have assumed control!" Evidently this is his preferred phrase for checking levels because he applauded me as the first person to recognize that he was referencing the Rush album 2112.

This year's Holiday Cheer for FUV with Conor Oberst and Friends is rich with musicians who bring a storyteller's character-driven perspective and an empathetic eye to the soulful architecture of their songs. We're so happy that one of New York's most poignant and potent lyricists, Suzanne Vega, is the latest addition to Holiday Cheer for FUV, a benefit concert for the station that the Brooklyn Vegan calls "an amazing night of folk." Suzanne joins her friend Conor Oberst as well as Natalie Merchant, Laura Marling, The Lone Bellow, The Felice Brothers and Jonathan Wilson at the Beacon Theatre on December 8. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster.
