    Punch Brothers Perform on NPR's "Mountain Stage"; Watch Bonnaroo Performance of "Movement and Location"

    Punch Brothers—who played two sets at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival last weekend—make their third appearance on NPR's Mountain Stage with a set recorded on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown earlier this year and airing on public radio stations across the US this week. The band performs five songs off their new album, Who's Feeling Young Now?: "Movement and Location," "Who's Feeling Young Now?," "Patchwork Girlfriend," "Flippin' (The Flip)," "This Girl," and "New York City." The album, says the show, "finds the quintet reaching out to territories whose nearest sonic neighbors might be experimental rock bands like Radiohead." You can watch an interview with Punch Brothers' Chris Thile featuring clips from the show in the video below and listen to the band's Mountain Stage performance at npr.org. And watch the band's performance of "Movement and Location" from Bonnaroo's Which Stage below as well.

    In more NPR broadcast news, Punch Brothers were also recently featured on John Wesley Harding's Cabinet of Wonders, recorded at New York's City Winery and now streaming at npr.org. Also on the show are musicians Josh Ritter (who co-wrote the lyrics to "New York" and "Hundred Dollars" off Who's Feeling Young Now? with Chris Thile) and Edie Brickell, author Sarah Vowell, and comedian Eugene Mirman.

    Punch Brothers' next live show comes this Saturday at the Clearwater Festival in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, followed by a set supporting Wilco at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado next week. For additional details, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
