Watch Free Energy Perform Live on a Rooftop!


You may have been too busy at work or with a school project last night, but indie sensations Free Energy were working on something of their own. The band performed on a NYC rooftop during rush hour at 6pm to a handful of fans, and a worldwide internet crowd who got to make live comments as the band was performing.

Free Energy played a whole set, and don’t be sad if you missed it. You can very well stream the performance from yesterday! This way you’ll be able to watch over and over again. It it us or do they remind you a little bit of mid career Phantom Planet? That’s a compliment. The band will also be premiering their new video for the song “Bang Pop” on Myspace, first thing Monday morning.
