Since his major label debut, the groundbreaking Salesmen and Racists, Ike Reilly has been making punk/folk/blues-influenced rock ’n’ roll records that lean heavily on stories of outsiders that insinuate a crack in the American dream. Reilly’s band, The Assassination, has been called one of the best live bands in America, and the body of recorded work they’ve turned out has been rebellious, wholly original, and critically acclaimed. The Ike Reilly Assassination perform at First Avenue on November 27 with Southside Desire, The Violet Nines, and Red Daughters.
