Kurt Vile & The Violators

http://www.930.com/event/258513-kurt-vile-violators-washington/

Kurt Vile will be at 9:30 club on Saturday July 20th. Tickets are on sale right now for $20. Doors at 8.

From Washington City Paper:
When Philadelphia’s Kurt Vile released his cult debut, 2008’s Constant Hitmaker, it was hard to say which part of his fuzzed-out road-warrior sound was closer to an affectation: The Neil Young/Bruce Springsteenisms, or the hissy lo-fi coating. A bunch of albums and a Matador Records contract later, Vile is writing longer and deeper and sounds a lot more expensive. His latest, Wakin on a Pretty Daze, can be crisp and cool, like a Crazy Horse record from right before or right after Young’s mid-’70s gloom spiral. Other times, it’s densely orchestrated and ruminative, with extended guitar excursions that sound like they’ve been filtered through bong water and the kind of beachy, unhurried vibe that connotes experience but in this cases thrives on it, too: The self-described “childish prodigy,” 33, now sounds pretty grown up. “All right, what now? That’s fine,” he sings on “KV Crimes” in his cracked, increasingly confident rasp. “I think I’m ready to claim what’s mine, rightfully.”

    Hi - It was nice to see everybody at Duffy's and then at the concert last night. I didn't stay to the end but it was good. Hope to see you again soon.

    This meetup got a much bigger response than FUN. Looks like I joined the right group. ;-)

    The Aging Hipsters DC group is also going but only 4 ppl signed up. Can they latch onto this outing? :)) Anywhere there is air conditioning will be great. :) I might grab a bite first aside from Duffy's if I have time. Thanks, Yema!

      Sounds great, Yema, thanks. As of now it would be me +3 which may turn into me +5. Do you know the details / where at this juncture? Btw, this is the group I refer: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Is there a specific designated meeting location in or outside the club ? I've been to 930 but this will be my first time with this meetup group.

    July 18, 2013

    • Yema

      I will send out an email to everyone later today with some details. I was thinking we could all meet at Duffy's. Its a bar across the street from 9:30 club.
