Georgia-based alt rockers Futurebirds are back in town for a headlining performance at 3rd and Lindsley on Sunday, April 17. Known for their stellar live performances and music that mixes alternative and southern rock with the grungy psych sound of the 1970s, the band have become a true force of nature. Thanks to the mature and evolved sound featured on their latest album Hotel Parties, the group have enjoyed more praise and exposure than ever before. For their return to Nashville, they’ve recruited local synth pop darling Tristen as support, cementing this as one of the shows you must see this weekend. Tickets are still available here, so grab yours now and click below to find out more about this awesome show.
Indie rockers Futurebirds hail from Athens, Georgia, and have been making waves with their experimental alt-country sound since 2008. After the release of their debut album, 2010’s Hampton’s Lullaby, and their followup EP Via Flamina, they became known for their distinctive mixture of pedal steel and electric guitar. At the same time, they quickly developed a strong stage presence, which has helped them gain a strong legion of fans who come out to show after show.
With the release of their third album Hotel Parties, the band showcased a fuller and more mature sound that showed just how far they’d come musically in just seven years. As alt-country steadily grows in popularity, Futurebirds still manage to create music outside the norm. Make sure you’re at 3rd and Lindsley to see their impressive live show for yourself.
Between traveling across the world as Jenny Lewis’ keyboardist and working on her own solo projects, it’s hard to catch Tristen performing in her own hometown these days. Fresh off a whirlwind national tour opening for The Weeks, she’s back to supply some of our favorite cuts from 2013’s wonderful CAVES and 2011’s Charlatans At The Garden Gate. Although it’s unclear if she’ll have any new material to share, we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that a new album is coming sooner rather than later.
Futurebirds and Tristen will perform Sunday, April 17 at 3rd and Lindsley. The show is all ages, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 6 p.m.), and tickets are available for $12.
