Video Premiere: Billy Bragg - "Swallow My Pride" (Live in London)

Music  |  Video

Though Billy Bragg’s latest studio effort Tooth & Nail is yet another display of Bragg’s impeccable songwriting and knack for getting a point across, it’s hard to deny that his live show is where fans really get a glimpse of the passion behind his songs.

For Bragg’s recent stop in London at a small venue called the Lexington, there were only around 100 tickets sold, and the room provided a uniquely intimate listening atmosphere. As usual, Bragg engaged with his fans with witty banter and bold lyrics, illustrating the charisma that has given him recognition as a powerful activist as well as musician.

Check out this live performance of “Swallow My Pride” from Bragg’s February appearance in London at the Lexington.
