Sharing the stage for the second of two nights at San Francisco
In the first night of a five-night run in New York City’s historic Greenwich village, where Bob Dylan rose from a coffeehouse open-mic regular to legendary status., Bright Eyes brought their music to the forefront. With the release of two critically acclaimed, and vastly different, albums earlier this year, Bright Eyes has quickly gained notoriety and popularity resulting in his face gracing the covers of practically every indie music magazine around.
The former Strangefolk co-founder lead singer and his band “The Assembly of Dust” are back with their sophomore effort, The Honest Hour. Following up their spectacular and finely crafted self-titled debut studio effort, The Honest Hour showcases the Assembly of Dust in the more familiar and looser live setting.
With This Magnificent Distance, Chris Robinson continues to stake his claim as one of the most imaginative and inventive singers and songwriters of our time.
Through relentless touring over the last couple years and word-of-mouth, Particle has quickly made a name for themselves by exciting audiences with their self-described “space porn” at festivals, clubs and late-night parties around the country. Particle’s first full-length album, Launchpad, effctively captures their energetic live sound in a studio setting.
Feels Like Home builds on the jazzy-pop sounds that made Jones’ debut album, Come Away With Me, such a huge success, but broadens the playing field a little wider by also venturing into the styles of bluegrass and country. Norah’s gentle voice and subtle piano playing is somehow both relaxing and energizing at the same time, and the album opener and first single, “Sunrise,” pulls you in from the get go with her soulful vocals.
