Watch R.E.M.'s SXSW performance in your living room

Posted on

If you missed this year’s SXSW Festival (and you probably did), you can still catch what may have been one of the fest’s highlights tomorrow night on PBS’ Austin City Limits (check local listings). The venerable concert show recorded an intimate performance by R.E.M. at the March event, shortly before the release of the band’s ferocious new Accelerate CD. The May 24 episode also includes interviews with all three members of the trio. At the show’s website, you can watch a preview clip of R.E.M.’s live rendition of their new single “Supernatural Superserious,” below is a clip of their performance of Accelerate‘s “Hollow Man.” Enjoy.
