Young The Giant To Perform On ‘MTV Unplugged’

After their crazy hyper performance of “My Body” at the 2011 MTV VMAs, MTV is inviting California indie rock act Young The Giant back, this time to slow it down a bit for an “MTV Unplugged” performance. Their set will air Nov. 9 on Unplugged.MTV.com at 7 p.m. ET.

Young The Giant will perform songs from their self-titled debut album in addition to a cover song during the “Unplugged” set. About playing the iconic acoustic showcase that’s recently included acts such as Thirty Seconds To Mars, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend and more, the band said, “To be included among such an acclaimed class of performers that have played before us is such an honor. We love playing acoustic stripped-down sets.”
