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.
