Here's the video of Columbus, Ohio-based band Red Wanting Blue performing live on "The Late Show With David Letterman" earlier this summer. The band is just one of five that will be taking to the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center Stage as WV Public Broadcasting's popular radio program "Mountain Stage with Larry Groce" returns to Huntington to record on Sunday, Nov. 4. Advance tickets are available for $25. Full-time Marshall students can get one free ticket with student I.D. More ticket info is below. Now in its 29th season, "Mountain Stage" records its two-hour radio program in front of an audience for later distribution to over 120 NPR stations nationwide and overseas via the Voice of America. "Mountain Stage" can be heard statewide every Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. on WV Public Radio. Each show features five guest artists, three of which have already been confirmed for Nov. 4. Highly acclaimed Philadelphia-based indie-rockers Dr. Dog anchor the evening's performance with their heavily Beatles-influenced sound as evidenced on their latest ANTI- records release "Be The Void." Also appearing is folk trio The Mountain Goats, led by songwriter and singer John Darnielle. Based in Claremont, CA, the prolific writer Darnielle took up the name Mountain Goats in 1991 and is prepping the release of their 14th album, "Transcendental Youth" on Oct. 2. Spirit Family Reunion have been causing a big stir recently, with a much buzzed about performance at the legendary Newport Folk Festival in July as well as a stirring performance at Virginia's Floyd Fest 11. Advance tickets are available from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Marshall Artists Series box office or by calling 304-696-6656 or by going online at www.ticketmaster.com.
