We are proud to present the first edition of our live music video series: ALTER AFTER HOURS.

In this series we will be showcasing private acoustic performances by some of our nearest and dearest musician friends, all shot in our workspace after store hours.

First up, all the way from Brooklyn New York, we have the incredible Aaron Lee Tasjan.

Aaron came by last week and blew us away with several amazing songs, including the two you will see below: Miracle Mile and August is a Blessing.

Take a moment to sit back, turn it up and watch him put the ALT in Alter After Hours!

See Aaron live this Thursday April 26th at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC: View the event page here.
