Margo Price guested on ‘The Daily Show,’ played Rough Trade (pics, videos)
Fresh off releasing her very good sophomore album All American Made, Margo Price appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to perform a stripped-down version of the album’s title track and to discuss in an interview with Trevor Noah how the album has more of a political side than her debut. In that interview, Margo said, “There’s this mentality from certain fans or people who want to keep politics out of music and this ‘shut up and sing’ mentality that we’ve had.” When Trevor asked how she would respond to that, she replied, “Well first of all I would say that if we want to keep celebrities and politicians separate, then we shouldn’t elect a reality TV star as the president,” at which point the audience erupted in laughter. She then added, “My second argument is that music and art should be thought-provoking and we should not limit ourselves to what we’re going to sing about. I think it’s important to look at the world around us and realize that we can change things for the better.” You can watch the full interview and Margo’s performance below.
The day before All American Made came out, Margo celebrated its release with an intimate Brooklyn show at Rough Trade NYC (10/19). The show streamed live on Sirius XM’s Outlaw Country channel, and SiriusXM also filmed a video of her playing “Don’t Say It” at the show, which you can watch below. We’ve got pictures of that show (including shots of openers Moruga Scorpio in the gallery above.
Margo makes another appearance in NYC today (10/25) at the Songkick offices for a Songkick Live session. She’ll be performing and doing a Q&A (RSVP is closed). Her tour also includes a much larger Brooklyn show on Friday (10/27) at Barclays Center, opening for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (tickets).
