Travis, live in concert. Emerging in the late '90s as one of the U.K.'s most passionate and infectious rock bands, Travis helped inspire a wave of new Britpop groups that included acts like Coldplay and Keane. The band is now on tour for its most inspired album in years. They performed at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club, in a full concert originally webcast live on NPR.org July 16.
