"Liam Finn, son of Crowded House frontman Neil Finn, played the Lustre Pearl stage in the gorgeous Waterfront District [during SXSW], a full band backing his passion-rock exhibition.Liam Finn has been out on tour since SXSW, and arrives in Brooklyn to headline The Bell House TONIGHT (4/9). All tour dates are listed below.
Accenting the end of several of his tracks by attacking a drum kit set up stage right, Finn unleashed a torrent of heartsongs that were anything but subtle and soft-spoken. Eddie Vedder brought him along as an opener on his 2009 solo tour, and the raw talent the man has with an acoustic guitar, a loop pedal and a microphone is enough to tempt any aspiring musician give up the craft for good, knowing their natural talent will never reach his." -[Crave Online]
Liam Finn is prepping to release his new LP, FOMO, via Yep Roc on June 21. The LP features "The Struggle" amongst its ten tracks which are listed below with a stream of that song.
