EXCLUSIVE: Black Pumas Play “Fire” on “Austin City Limits”
The soul band will share the stage with The Raconteurs this Saturday on PBS.
Black Pumas have come a long way in a short period of time—the soulful funk duo competing with the likes of Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Lil Nas X for this year’s Best New Artist Grammy have quietly amassed a sizable following despite their lack of viral stardom, merging the experience of Latin rock vet Adrian Quesada with the grit of former Santa Monica Pier busker Eric Burton.
Before the big awards night, though, the group took their talents to the revered Austin City Limits stage, where they filmed a show set to be broadcast on the PBS program of the same name this Saturday, January 11, to a wide audience. As we anticipate their performance—alongside a set from The Raconteurs—we’re getting an exclusive sneak peak in the form of an online-only clip of the Pumas performing their spicy single “Fire” with a full live band.
Watch the video below—you can find more info and both bands’ setlists at ACL’s website.
