The '70s rock of today
Concert as a part of Autumn Falls.
Kurt Vile was co-founder of The War On Drugs, but upon the release of their debut album he opted for a solo career. We’re now 10 years on and the singer has no less than eight albums to his name. It was ‘Wakin on a Pretty Daze’, in particular, that provided him with his big break.
He is known for his nonchalant, honest fuzzrock, in which he mingles rock influences from the '70s. Live, Kurt Vile will again be accompanied by his inseparable backing band The Violators.
For fans of Ty Segall, Courtney Barnett, Kevin Morby, Amen Dunes, The War On Drugs, Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr.

‘Kurt Vile has a persona, and you know him by now: He is the weird quiet kid in the corner, the one who seems at first lost in his own world and disconnected from everything around him, but turns out to be smart, observant, and low-key hilarious.’ - Pitchfork
