Don't miss this rare opportunity to catch both of these incredible bands on the same bill. The Ballroom Thieves and Blue Healer have been touring relentlessly and making waves and gaining fans at every stop along the way...
THE BALLROOM THIEVES:
In January 2012 The Ballroom Thieves broke into the Boston alternative scene with a five-song, foot-stomping EP entitled The Devil & The Deep. Since their debut release the trio has captivated audiences with their unique instrumentation and dazzling three-part vocal harmonies. In the span of just one year they have performed at over 30 colleges nationwide, shared the stage with established acts such as Dispatch, The Lone Bellow, Houndmouth, Little Green Cars and The Apache Relay, and played to sold-out crowds at The Sinclair, Mercury Lounge, Great Scott and the historic Club Passim in Cambridge, MA.
The Ballroom Thieves consistently deliver inspiring live performances highlighted by the group's infectious passion and raw energy, which are unrivaled in the local music scene. The sonic diversity of their growing repertoire allows the band to entrance an intimate listening room one night and entertain a large festival crowd the next.
For The Ballroom Thieves, the band’s journey has only just begun, but their roots already run quite deep. Now, on A Wolf in the Doorway the Thieves find themselves taking the very idea of “roots” and creating ways to make its associated sound progress, while making its encompassing spirit glow.
Born out of the belief that music should be fun, Blue Healer cruised into the Austin scene in 2015 with the ease of your first high school set of wheels - the wheels you got to second-base in on a neon-tinged Friday night. Mixing distorted upright bass, shimmering guitar, analog synths, and drums, the Texas native trio blends a unique mesh of indie rock and dance sounds into the familiar fabric of classic songwriting. Picture the face of pop accessibility with the teeth of basement rock n' roll - the songs sink in and don't let go.
Members David Beck, Bryan Mammel, and Dees Stribling all played and toured nationally together in previous projects, including Austin-based Sons of Fathers, where David was a primary singer and writer. Blue Healer creates a big, unforgettable live performance that you won't want to miss. Look forward to their debut album in 2016.
