Frightened Rabbit tribute show w/ Julien Baker, Ben Gibbard & more streaming
Julien Baker, Ben Gibbard, Aaron Dessner, Kevin Devine, and Craig Finn came together in Brooklyn in December to pay tribute to the late Scott Hutchison by performing the songs of Frightened Rabbit. We posted some videos from the show already, but if you weren't there, or you'd like a more complete way to relieve what was a very special night, members of Frightened Rabbit have released a recording of the night on Soundcloud, which you can listen to below or download here.
Frightened Rabbit writes:
This night was not a night of mourning or a night of sadness but a celebration of an extremely special person and the music he created. Scott inspired everyone who met him, heard his lyrics or saw his art. We feel his loss every day but we are all in this together and we carry on strengthened by the support of the people involved in this recording and those around the world who have been affected by Scott’s passing. A huge thank you goes out to Ben Gibbard, Craig Finn, Aaron Dessner, Julien Baker and Kevin Devine for their support, love and kindness in being involved. We want to encourage people who listen to this to laugh, cry, hug and sing in your worst Scottish accent at the top of your lungs and keep the spirit of Scott alive in all our hearts and all our voices. While we’re alive let’s all make tiny changes to Earth.
A mental health charity in Scott's name called the Scott Hutchison Fund is set to launch later this year; ahead of its launch, you can donate to the fund.
PS: Julien's new album Little Oblivions is for sale on black vinyl in the BrooklynVegan shop.
