The fest has become well-known for reuniting influential underground artists and has quickly become one of the top music destination festivals in the U.S. for fans.

Numerous acclaimed artists have graced their stages, from The White Stripes and Yoko Ono, to Death Cab for Cutie and Bright Eyes, and many more.

The festival has expanded in recent years to also include art gallery shows, as well as a music-centric film festival, a pop-up shop, an art exposition, an album-inspired dinner series called Covers, a weekend workshop exploring independent culture called the Noise Pop Culture Club, and much more.

Our favorite late night music show is Last Call with Carson Daly. Every episode has a cool spotlight feature on a little known artist (musical or not) that’s about to explode and a great live performance. This is all possible because of the addition of music producer Davis Powers who’s in charge of all the music that you see on the show. We recently spoke with Davis all about the show (our interview will be available later this week) and asked him about his top 5 moments of 2010 from Last Call. Check them out below (with video proof!)

1. Fitz and The Tantrums performing “Money Grabber”: We captured the band at their big homecoming show at The El Rey Theatre. The crowd was so electric and Fitz had them at his fingertips–just check out the video..



2. Albert Cross @ The Troubadour: The UK band made their television debut with us and quickly proved they were one of the best new live rock bands out there.

3. A Perfect Circle performing “The Noose”: We worked closely with Maynard to collaborate on the look and feel of this shoot. Everything totally translated and Maynard even sat down with Carson for a rare interview.

4. Built to Spill making their second ever TV appearance with us: I have been a life long fan and jumped at the opportunity to pitch them appearing on the show. Doug and the gang couldnt have been nicer and they played a very memorable set that night that we were lucky enough to capture.

5. Carson interviewing Tift Merritt: This was one of the first interviews Carson did when I became the music booker. He didnt even blink when I pitched her and he was so passionate about highlighting her talents and giving her some much deserved airtime, I knew I had landed at the right show..

“As the lights dimmed before [Matisyahu and K’Naan] came on, the only light still visibly shining was the (RED)NIGHTS logo illuminated on the walls, a symbol that even amongst something as bleak and devastating like AIDS and HIV, there is still hope.” James Boyce, Huffington Post

(RED) and Live Nation today announce new dates for (RED)NIGHTS, an innovative series of 26 concerts in the U.S. to generate money and awareness for the ultimate goal of eliminating AIDS in Africa. The new set of shows will feature concerts by (RED)NIGHTS artists Built to Spill, Thievery Corporation, Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin and Sondre Lerche at venues such as The Fillmore in San Francisco, The Paradise in Boston and the House of Blues in Chicago.

The new (RED)NIGHTS dates follow a successful first round of concerts, which earned attention in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, NME, Time Out New York and the Dallas Morning News. For the first set of shows, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, Gomez, Santigold, O.A.R., Lisa Hannigan, The Veronicas, Matisyahu and K’Naan each turned one of their concerts (RED) to bring the (RED) experience to life in a new way. At each of these shows, (RED)NIGHTS and the community of acclaimed artists aimed to inspire fans to participate in (RED)’s mission to eliminate AIDS in Africa by pausing to highlight the many ways to get involved and encouraging those in the audience to share the message and experience with others.

“I believe no person deserves to suffer from a preventable, treatable disease simply because they can’t afford medicine,” said Marc Roberge of O.A.R. “If bringing awareness to what (RED) is doing helps one person receive antiretroviral treatment and live a healthy life, we have accomplished our goal.”

Ultimately, it is the goal of (RED)NIGHTS to build a community—of artists, concertgoers and music fans everywhere—that is passionate about helping to fight AIDS in Africa. A portion of the proceeds of each (RED)NIGHTS concert goes directly to the Global Fund (theglobalfund.org).

(RED) presents the (RED)NIGHTS concert series kicked off at select Live Nation clubs and theaters across the country earlier this year. (RED) and Live Nation are collaborating to link acclaimed artists with their fans to join the fight against AIDS in Africa. Information about the scheduled (RED)NIGHTS concerts can be found at http://www.livenation.com and http://www.joinred.com/rednights

“(RED) was looking to engage more people in its mission, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa. The (RED)NIGHTS series is an innovative concept that combines the power of Live Nation’s live music platform and venues to use people’s passion for music to raise awareness and, ultimately, generate more money to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.” said Russell Wallach, President of North American Alliances for Live Nation. “We’re building a great line up of artists for (RED)NIGHTS, and believe we can help (RED) successfully deliver its message by connecting them with music fans all over the country.”

“(RED)NIGHTS is one more way for people to become (RED) and support our efforts to eliminate AIDS in Africa,” says Jenifer Willig, Director of Partners and Marketing at (RED). “We’re so honored to have incredible artists turning their shows (RED) and look forward to bringing (RED)NIGHTS to fans across the country.”

(RED)NIGHTS arrives on the heels of (RED)WIRE http://www.redwire.com, the innovative new digital music service from (RED). The (RED)NIGHTS artists join an impressive community of (RED) artists who are participating in (RED)WIRE, including U2, Coldplay, The Killers, Jay-Z, Elvis Costello, John Legend, Sheryl Crow, Neko Case, Noel Gallagher, Conor Oberst, TV On The Radio, Death Cab For Cutie, Michael Franti and many more. (RED)NIGHTS and (RED)WIRE mark the first time (RED) has moved into the music arena and are a mutual extension of (RED)’s mission, whereby the music community is coming together as a vehicle to raise awareness and funds to help fight AIDS in Africa.
