Tickets are now running extremely low for the forthcoming Kurt Vile show at The Ritz. Those looking to attend are advised to book beforehand or risk disappointment.
Bewitched by lo-fi figureheads like Beck, Pavement, and Smog, along with a love for classics like Petty, Creedence, and Neil Young, Kurt Vile recorded his first songs and self-distributed them on CD-R between 2003 and 2007. Since then, he’s become one of the world’s most revered cult artists, with his latest LP – b’lieve i’m goin down… perhaps being his finest work to date with opener Pretty Pimpin arguably being his most finely honed pop song to date.
Support for this show now comes from Lushes, who Stereogum described as “a band that screws with that expectation as much as they embrace it, though. Every time they seem like they might break into an abrupt noise attack, they cut to a gentle moment of beauty, or add a flourish of synths.”
