Tortoise’s April 24 show at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club will by cybercast on the Web site of the Chicago band’s label, Thrill Jockey Records. Afterward, the concert will be available from the site as an audio stream, as will photos from the gig. The label says it is hoping to begin offering live music events on the site on a regular basis.
Tortoise recently launched its first official Web site, which features a 15-track online radio show and will in the future host remixes and hard-to-find tracks for download. The group is touring in support of its brand new sixth album, “It’s All Around You.”
