In lieu of their recently announced tour dates, The Arcs were featured on the popular NPR series Tiny Desk Concerts.

For those who are unfamiliar, Tiny Desk Concerts is widely known and has hosted a plethora of talented musicians from Phoenix to John Legend. It was coincidentally the 500th episode and was thus celebrated as so; with a sheet cake and dollar store pop fireworks. But enough with the shenanigans, The Arcs kicked some radio booty. An American rock band formed by none other than Dan Auerbach, guitarist and vocalist for The Black Keys, The Arcs were formed after the 2015 Governors Ball. Reminiscent of a time when the smell of weed spread for miles from a 70’s Woodstock gathering, the band clearly takes influence from psychedelic groups like The Grateful Dead. Though their set on NPR was short lived, and only consisted of three songs from their album Yours, Dreamily, the group performed a well-rehearsed and jubilant warm up to their touring season.

Amazingly, despite their short time as a band, they have secured a spot at Coachella this year. For more on Auerbach’s side project, visit their official site.
