Stuyvesant at the Warm-Up Session

While in Memphis last week, Stuyvesant stopped by the legendary Ardent Studios (founded by Jody Stephens of Big Star) for a chat with Rachel Hurley, followed by a stripped down performance.

Digging into three cuts from _Fret Sounds_, the band performed a rare, “quiet” set (read: no drums, no distortion) prior to heading across town for a show at The Buccaneer.

Rachel says “East coast indie rockers Stuyvesant dropped by this afternoon to play a stripped down set for us before they tear the roof off of The Buccaneer tonight with Burning Sands and Harlan T. Bobo’s new rock outfit the Fuzz. We chatted about the digital age, vinyl records and the marriage of art and music. The guys were super nice and we’re really looking forward to their show TONIGHT!”
