Our favorite hippie, keyboardist Marco Benevento, has been touring fairly steadily since the release of his latest genre-bending album, Swift. Back in April, Benevento played Burlington, Vermont’s Signal Kitchen in a show that had everything– a masquerade ball, a full moon, a segue into a David Bowie tune, and all the craziness that would entail Benevento and his posse playing one of their favorite venues. The night was just so magical that he just released the recording of the set for free at the Royal Potato Family site, so you should definitely cop it for yourself and coast on this vibe.
And if that got you going, Marco Benevento is still hitting the country through the next few months, playing tunes from Swift and the upcoming The Story of Fred Short, so make sure to catch him if he’s heading in your direction.
