Hot Video Alert: Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs - Repo Man (Live on Letterman)
To help psych me out for next week's concert here in Boston, I decided to post a little live video of Ray LaMontagne doin' his thing for Live On Letterman (an online concert of sorts) a couple of weeks back. While LaMontagne did a few songs for the online exclusive set, "Repo Man" was the one featured on the broadcast and it was absolutely brilliant. The energy that LaMontagne brings to his live performances is electric! If you've ever had the pleasure of seeing Ray perform live then you know that he's a man of few words. Shy and extremely humble, what LaMontagne lacks in audience interaction between songs, he MORE than makes up for in the actual performance.
"Repo Man" comes from LaMontagne's latest album, God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise, released last August on RCA Records. The album peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 chart and went on to earn two Grammy nominations, one for Best Contemporary Folk Album (which it won) and one for Song Of The Year ("Beg, Steal or Borrow"). I'll be there at the Bank Of America Pavillion in Boston next week for his sold out show and I can hardly wait!

Tickets are available for some of his shows so make sure you check out his full list of summer tour dates HERE.
