Lake Street Dive

The Buzzed About Lake Street Dive Prove They Are For Real In Our Live Session

The history of our guests today, the much buzzed about Boston band Lake Street Dive, goes back further than their show-stopping appearance in Another Day, Another Time, the Showtime documentary filmed in celebration of the film Inside Llewyn Davis. Back even further than their one camera street corner video version of "I Want You Back" that has well over a million views on Youtube. The band formed in 2004 while the members were attending the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and they have released 3 albums before their new one Bad Self Portraits. The Cafe's Michaela Majoun talks with the band today and we hear some characteristically energetic performances from lead singer Rachael Price and company.
