In celebration of its fifth season, Artists Den Entertainment has released digital episodes from the first season of Live from the Artists Den featuring Aimee Mann, Ani DiFranco, the Hold Steady, and Patty Griffin. The episodes are now available for download at the Artists Den Store. This is the first time fans will be able to download and enjoy these episodes since they originally aired in 2008. To preview the episodes, Artists Den is streaming videos of Aimee Mann's "Freeway," The Hold Steady's "Sequestered in Memphis," Ani DiFranco's "32 Flavors," and Patty Griffin's "Heavenly Day" from their Live from the Artists Den performances.
Aimee Mann's episode took place at Vibiana, a breathtaking former Archdiocese cathedral in Los Angeles, where she performed in a stripped-down, trio lineup.
