TV on the Radio

TV on the Radio first played in Saratoga Springs in 2007, on a side stage at a WEQX-sponsored festival at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, at a time when the Brooklyn art rock band was just breaking out beyond college radio and getting more mainstream play with their “Wolf Like Me” single.

It was a sweltering July afternoon, and the band found itself – somewhat ironically – staring straight into the sun as they played their groundbreaking first single, “Staring at the Sun.” But singer Tunde Adebimpe was a whirlwind, bounding around the stage as the band cut through the stupor of the heat with a searing energy.

Four years later, TV on the Radio returned to the area on Friday night to play Skidmore College’s major concert event of the fall semester, and the group is now one of the most acclaimed indie rock bands of the past decade.
