As Peter Wolf Crier’s summer tour with Heartless Bastards wound down the guys pulled into Madison, WI for a free university show at the Union Terrace. As the light in the western sky drew low and the stage became awash in a deep summer glow, Peter Wolf Crier launched into a brilliant cover of Nick Drake’s “Place To Be” and created one of those glorious moments where everything was in its right place. Luckily enough, Spencer Wells from Urban Agrarian ( urbanargrarian.com ) was in attendance and captured the moment on film. You can read Spencer’s review of the performance HERE, and check out the video below.

Last week when Peter Wolf Crier toured through Washington DC they had time to stop by WGTB, Georgetown University’s radio station and play a few songs. Peter Wolf Crier played “For Now,” “Crutch and Cane,” “Saturday Night,” and “Untitled 101″ in a stripped down and more restrained fashion. As you listen to these live versions the simple beauty and intimacy of these songs really unfold. On the really good days in this biz real magic happens, and this session is a good example of just that. You can streampeter-wolf-crier-crutch-and-cane all four songs from the session over at WGTB’s blog.
