There's no better way to kick off your weekend than with this charming, uplifting video of Ages and Ages performing at a friend's home, with an army of guest singers chiming in, including members of the Northwest Children's Choir and PHAME, plus other local musicians. Alicia J. Rose directed the live video, and the band's frontman Tim Perry says, "In a lot of ways, I feel like this is the way our music is intended to be: inclusive, communal, and all together." Ages and Ages' next Portland area show is at Pickathon, which takes place August 1-3.

This performance comes from Eidolons' new live album, which you can get on June 24 from Banana Stand.
