Philadelphia’s Kurt Vile is a favorite here at XPN because of the rockin’ jams he cooks up with The Violators. But today, we get a taste of who he is while not on stage. Vile stopped by Tom Scharpling’s studio for the latest episode of The Best Show podcast. The two talk about The Eagles, Jelloman, stage presence, and eventually get into a live performance from Vile. “Pretty Pimpin” and “I’m An Outlaw” off 2015’s b’lieve i’m goin down were his songs of choice.

Listen to the full episode here, and fast forward to the 46:30 mark to find Vile’s entrance.

Kurt Vile and The Violators were last in town to provide the perfect end to night one of NonCOMM. To hear them next, get your passes to XPoNential Festival from July 22-24, where Vile and his band will play BB&T Pavilion on night one. Later on this summer, they’ll headline Lancaster’s Chameleon Club on August 27th. Tickets and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
