FIRST AVENUE WEEKLY PRESS RELEASE: October 29, 2019
Following the release of his new album (and original Netflix show), Sound & Fury, singer-songwriter Sturgill Simpson has announced North American dates for his A Good Look’n Tour, including a stop at The Armory on April 4. Offering a rare quote to media, Simpson said: “We are a live band. Everyone knows we are a live band. Steal the record or give it away, just come to the shows." Missing out on tickets to Tyler Childers’ two sold-out shows this November? You’re in luck—he’s supporting Sturgill Simpson on this tour.
“The Driver Era are creating music the way it was meant to be created—exactly how they wanted to make it, with no boundaries and no boxes,” (Atwood). Brothers Rocky and Ross Lynchs’ debut album X flits between pop, rock, and funk—unconcerned with the confines of genre. Catch the duo at First Avenue on April 26.
The story of Mura Masa reminds people that there’s still room for optimism about the “internet generation.” Again, and again, he proves it’s possible to combine the myriad influences available to anyone with a broadband connection into something unique, coherent, future-facing, and very, very popular. Mura Masa’s RYC World Tour hits First Avenue on April 28.
Truly a can’t-miss show, Greensky Bluegrass with The Lil Smokies perform at the Palace Theatre on Saturday, November 2. “The band's live shows are just wild,” says NPR. “The members mix the energy of stadium rock with the spirit of jam bands…they play bluegrass instruments—like banjo, mandolin and dobro—through a surprisingly psychedelic set of effects pedals.”
