The Revivalists recently performed a career-highlighting set on the main Acura Stage at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival last weekend. Only a few days later, they learned that their single “Wish I Knew You” hit #1 on Alternative Radio this week and set a new record for most single-week spins ever on the platform. It’s safe to say the NOLA-based septet is on the right path.Yesterday, frontman Dave Shaw and guitarist Zack Feinberg stopped by Paste Magazine‘s New York City office to deliver an acoustic, stripped-down performance of “Wish I Knew You,” along with “Hurricane Winslow” from 2010’s Vital Signs, and “It Was A Sin” from 2015’s Men Amongst Mountains, complete with song commentary.Next up for the band is a performance at The Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA (outside Philadelphia) tomorrow, May 12th, before heading to Atlanta for their set at Shaky Knees Music Festival this Saturday, May 13th. F0r a full list of upcoming dates, or to purchase tickets, head to the band’s website.
