How do you persevere through inconceivable tragedy? Two years ago, Shannon & The Clams lead singer Shannon Shaw lost her fiancée, Joe Haener, in a car crash just months before they were to be married. The garage punk band's new album, The Moon Is in the Wrong Place, grapples with loss and finding healing in the aftermath.

The album, produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, is awash in the quartet's signature sounds of doo-wop and garage rock, and it's also their most focused and raw work to date. In this session, we're sharing a mini-concert with Shannon & The Clams, recorded at SXSW, in Austin.

Shannon & The Clams are Shannon Shaw, Nate Mahan, William Sprott and Cody Blanchard. This session was recorded at Electric Deluxe Recorders by Aaron Glemboski, and mixed by Aaron Ullman.
