When I first saw Benjamin Booker play live, it was easy to see what a talent he is. On that day at SXSW back in March, I knew we had to get him in front of our listeners. Not surprisingly, I was pretty excited when the show came together at Rockwood Music Hall.

Ben and his band have spent the last few months touring and those dates on the road have proved to be quite the growing experience for the trio. They played one of our louder Marquee shows in front of some instantly impressed WFUV members, featuring songs from Booker's self-titled debut. Highlights include "Violent Shiver," "Have You Seen My Son?" and "Falling Down Blues" complete with fiddle and mandolin.
