Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are touring the US in support of their new album, Push the Sky Away, and their first show is tonight at SXSW at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin, Texas.

Unless you are in Austin tonight and have a Platinum Pass, or won some sort of ticket raffle, or know someone in the band or a friend of someone in the band, or work at Stubb’s, you aren’t seeing the show. But you can watch it on your computer because NPR is broadcasting the special showcase tonight featuring Nick Cave, Waxahatchee, Café Tecvba, Youth Lagoon, Yeah Yeah Yeas, and Alt-J. Nick will take the stage at 5:45 p.m. PST.

So tune in on your computer, smartphone, or radio and listen to some of what Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will be playing at their nineteen sold-out shows across the US that are going on through April 21st.

They will be in Seattle at The Paramount Theatre on Sunday, April 7th. Sharon Van Etten will open the show.

There are no paper tickets so I don’t know how you can get in if you don’t have a ticket.

Set List

Higgs Boson Blues

Wide Lovely Eyes

Jubilee Street

From Her to Eternity

Red Right Hand

Only a one-hour set with no encore. I expect he’ll be doing much more during regular gigs.
