Price: $ 10.00 - $ 12.00 Age Limit: 21+ Additional Info: Whether they’re tearing it up in a basement, rocking a festival crowd or hard at work in a studio, The Districts are a band that exists in the moment. The Pennsylvania four-piece channels its long-forged bonds into visceral, explosive rock and roll. You’ll hear hints of Americana, moments of the blues and folk, but written into songs so expressive that those labels are transcended. Their second LP, A Flourish and a Spoil, is out on Fat Possum Records in February of 2015. Sonically, Flourish is a vibrant, eclectic rock record, collecting sounds from toe-tapping fuzz-pop (“Peaches”) to contemplative folk (“Suburban Smell”) and driving, impressionistic soundscapes (“Young Blood” is well worth 9 minutes of your time) into a whirlwind 45 minute set. The Districts credit John Congleton with shaping their sound on this outing. While the band is used to writing and producing on its own, Congleton “gave us an objective ear that helped us find and refine what we were trying to accomplish with this album.” Founding member Rob Grote recalls that, toward the end of the recording process, he had a song stuck in his head: the old Doris Day tune “A Bushel and a Peck,” which his mother used to sing to him as a childhood lullaby. “The title was born from that,” he says. “A Flourish and a Spoil is our attempt to reconcile lullabies with reality.” It also announces the arrival of The Districts as a captivating voice in contemporary rock: a young band crafting heartfelt music that’s honest, raw, energetic and unforgettable.
