Punch Brothers: Live from the Greene Space

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Punch Brothers just aren’t as young as they used to be – but that’s not saying much, considering that frontman Chris Thile recorded his first album as an 11-year-old with bluegrass band Nickel Creek. However, on Punch Brothers’ latest record, “Who’s Feeling Young Now?,” the five-piece band (now all in their mid-20s to early-30s) seems more energetic than ever. The group brings their rollicking string-band rock to the Greene Space for a live performance. 

Watch our post-broadcast encore from the Punch Brothers, with their song "This Girl."

Guests:

Punch Brothers and Chris Thile

I am a HUGE fan of bluegrass and even like the Punch Bros. They're clearly extremely talented musicians but, I gotta say, I find 'em just a little too cutesy, at times.
