Fresh off the October release of his latest full-length album, Bottle It In, Kurt Vile is picking up right where he left off: playing his songs on the road. Vile, known for maintaining a relentless touring schedule, took a rare and well-deserved break from the road to craft the songs that make up this latest project. The album’s songs offer a seamless fit into Vile’s discography; they depict a natural evolution of the artist’s familiar, meandering style of storytelling. They are informed by his experiences, shaped by all that time he’s spent — and the people he’s met — on the road.
Bay area fans will get their first chance to hear these new songs live when Kurt Vile and the Violators headline Oakland’s Fox Theater on Wednesday, December 12. You don’t want to be late to this one, either: Jessica Pratt will deliver the opening performance. Grab your tickets today.
