This event is all ages
Lucius is a triple-threat of vocal harmonies, infectious hooks, and dance-inducing percussion. Pair those traits with the band’s irresistible live show and it’s easy to see why NPR Music calls Lucius "a fabulous band playing such infectious pop songs” and Paste hails the group as "blissful.” Charismatic co-founders and lead vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig sing in unison – two voices as one – uniquely delivering songs with stories told from the same perspective. Multi-instrumentalists Andrew Burri, Peter Lalish, and Dan Molad round out the stylish, Brooklyn-based quintet. Lucius release their debut album Wildewoman, October 15 in North America on Mom+Pop.
Boston and Washington, DC based six-piece Kingsley Flood released their first full-lenth Dust Windows in 2010, generating both critical acclaim and a passionate fan base. In 2011, the band issued the six-song EP Colder Still, with tracks that were touted by NPR, Esquire, and Paste.
The band, described by the Boston Herald as a "Rolling Thunder Revue with a punk rock sneer," has supported Grace Potter and Nocturnals, Angus and Julia Stone, Langhorne Slim, and Brett Dennen, among others, and is a two-time winner at both the Boston Music Awards and the Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll.
In 2013, Kingsley Flood has no plans to sit still. Battles, their latest full-length (released Feb. 5), is the band's most honed, complex, and meaningful project to date. Anchored by Rolling Stone premiere "Down" and MTV Buzzworthy premiere "Pick Your Battles," the album was recorded with producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim, David Wax Museum) at Great North Sound Society in rural Maine.
Battles amplifies the band's pension for dynamics — rock songs that can fill music halls, quiet songs that sound two feet away. The resulting sound blends Dylan-esque storytelling, Kinks-inspired melodies, and the urgency of the Clash. With songs inspired by everyone from delusional dictators to spray-tanned politicians to laid-off workers trying to get back on their feet, Battles winds a deliberate path from self doubt (opener "Don't Change My Mind") to quiet determination (closer "This Will Not Be Easy").
