While Coachella is the biggest live music event going down tonight, those that aren’t interested in The xx, Radiohead and more are in luck. Pitchfork will be hosting a live stream of Sigur Rós’ concert tonight, the first of three shows, at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA. Take a look at the live stream below:
The show is a part of a new live music web series that Pitchfork will be hosting, logically called Pitchfork Live. This first set will feature the Icelandic experimental rock group performing along with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for a 50 minute set, as well as another 50 minute set of the band performing alone. The LA Phil is lead by their conductor, Esa-Pekka Salonen.
This show marks the first time the avant-garde band will play at the hallowed Walt Disney Concert Hall, and also their first ever performance with the LA Phil. Expect sets filled with both new and old music. Guest arrangements from well-known music stars like Daníel Bjarnason, Dan Deacon, Owen Pallett, Nico Muhly, Anna Meredith, Missy Mazzoli, Páll Ragnar Palsson and David Lang will be featured during the orchestral set.
