The Building Give Haunting Performance Of ‘Warning’ on ‘World Café’

December 28, 2019


The War On Drugs guitarist Anthony LaMarca brought his side project, The Building, to NPR’s World Café and gave a stellar live performance of the song “Warning” off the band’s sophomore album PETRA

“To begin to explain what PETRA is, we have to go back a few years to when my wife and I moved back to Youngstown, Ohio, where I’m from,” explained LaMarca in a statement. “It’s around this time that we got a dog, a German Shepherd. My wife had wanted a dog more than anything since she was born. She waited thirty years and finally came Petra, our dog. She named her Petra because the name means ‘rock.’ We needed a rock.  We needed grounding. Petra held us together.”

Shot at WXPN Studios in Philadelphia, LaMarca led the haunting appearance with the assistance of his Gretsch G6118T-60 Vintage Edition ’60 Anniversary.
