FIRST AVENUE WEEKLY PRESS RELEASE: Tuesday, September 24, 2019
“Rex Orange County—a.k.a. U.K.-born DIY musician Alex O'Connor—spins familiar R&B and lo-fi material into earnest, golden soft-rock for a new generation that's just as lovelorn as the past. It's no wonder that, in his brief career, he's managed to link up with Tyler, the Creator and Randy Newman—both of whom he counts as his heroes” (NPR). In support of his recently announced album, Rex Orange County brings The Pony Tour to the Palace Theatre on January 26, 2020.
On October 25, Grace Potter releases Daylight, her second solo LP and first on Fantasy Records. Daylight arrives after a turbulent, life-altering four-year hiatus from music that had the acclaimed singer-songwriter contemplating whether she would ever record another album. Cathartic and emotionally raw, Daylight is the result of that arduous journey, the most emotionally revealing, musically daring work of her career. Catch Grace Potter’s performance at the Palace Theatre on Saturday, February 8, 2020.
SOFI TUKKER bring their dancefloor bangers to First Avenue on April 13, 2020. “We like to do ridiculous things to make people react and get them out of themselves,” Tucker Halpern (one-half of SOFI TUKKER) tells Billboard of their stage performances. “We want people to feel shocked and as excited as we are, but still somehow connected to us personally. We're not gonna hide behind big production. We like to be silly and playful and colorful, like we’re there with the people and not just performing for them.”
Join us in the Mainroom on Friday, September 27 to celebrate the musical legacy of the man responsible for hits like “Free Fallin’” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels.” Runnin’ Down a Dream—A Tribute to Tom Petty features artists Eleganza!, White Iron Band, Dan Israel, Faith Boblett, Shalo Lee & Northern Southern, John Swardson, and more special guests performing Petty’s best work!
