July Avant-Garde Event
Frist Friday featuring: Band of Heathens Since emerging as an important new live band from Austin, the Band of Heathens has toured relentlessly with their epic live shows and built a devoted following that has landed them on some of the finest stages in music, including Bonnaroo, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Lollapalooza and the Austin City Limits television show and the Austin City Limits Festival.
The Dallas Morning News calls theirs a “must-see show.” Maverick Magazine simply described them as “terrific,” and The New York Times reviewed one of their shows as “hungry, unflagging and lean.”
Their most recent album, Top Hat Crown & The Clapmaster’s Son, has been lauded for demonstrating artistic stretch and growth while maintaining the band’s integrity. In a crowded field of roots rockers, the Pittsburgh Daily News dubbed the effort “truly memorable,” and American Songwriter described it as “an album that begs to be listened to from start to finish.”
Grab a friend and enjoy an evening of live music and great art at the Frist Center’s summer concert series!
Join fellow Avant-Garde members in the Rechter Room and enjoy complimentary light hors d’ oeuvres and a private bar at the event.
