The show is also the CD Release for the Brooklyn-based duo The Mast, and the whole thing is going to be streamed live online.

You've got a couple of options for watching this. You can go to or you can watch the show below. Let us know what you think of the show afterwards in the comment section or participate in the live chat at the Concert Window website.
