Lake Street Dive

Lake Street Dive - Backstage at Holiday Cheer for WFUV

by Rita Houston

FUV is all about supporting new artists, and if you'd heard Lake Street Dive on FUV or seen video of their Kevin Bacon-approved cover of "I Want You Back," you knew we were in for quite a kick-off at this year's Holiday Cheer for FUV. If you didn't know the Brooklyn-via-Boston band before that night, well, they took full advantage of the biggest stage they'd ever played and won over a whole new crop of music fans.

Tonight On the Whole Wide World: Introducing Lake Street Dive

by Rita Houston

Join us on tonight on The Whole Wide World for an exclusive premiere performance from rising stars, Lake Street Dive. After coming across their cover of the Jackson Five classic "I Want You Back" on YouTube, I invited the conservatory-trained quartet to be the opening artists for our Holiday Cheer for FUV show happening next Wednesday at The Beacon. Just as I expected, this band is much more than a covers project. Their original songs are fun, catchy, and masterfully performed.
