Watch: Marketa Irglova’s Tiny Desk Concert

Swell Seasoner Marketa Irglova recently released a solo album, Anar. Watch her perform three songs at an NPR Tiny Desk Concert.

Speaking of the Swell Season, there’s currently an off-Broadway musical version of Once hitting the stage in a few days and documentary about the band is making the rounds.

The real-life romance that blossomed out of Oscar-winning indie “Once” is over. Glen Hansard confirmed he is no longer dating Marketa Irglova.

Since then, they have toured together, but now it’s just as friends. (full story)

Wonder what this means about The Swell Season vs. The Frames..

Last night’s show was so good. I’ve seen The Frames a bunch of times in the past, but this was something really special.

Anyway, Reno’s screenprinted poster is available for sale on his website.
