Futurebirds tickets - Futurebirds tour dates

Futurebirds Tour Schedule

It is not often that a band bursts onto the scene and excites music lovers and critics alike, yet this is precisely what the Futurebirds accomplished when they made their debut in Athens, Georgia in 2008. Their high energy live shows, and reverb-laden country sound made them stand out immediately and garnered the attention of music fans across the country. Fortunately for these fans not in the Athens area, Futurebirds have a string of dates lined up across the country.

Saturday January 18, 2014 sees the Futurebirds take the stage at Denver, Colorado's Bluebird Theater, one of the best music venues in the Mile High City. Denver based Futurebirds have been waiting a while to catch them live and the Futurebirds are aiming not to disappoint. Later in the month the band will hit up the Independent in San Francisco and they know that impressing a crowd in the Bay Area which is spoiled with great shows regularly will require their best effort. Of course, Fitzgerald's in Houston, Texas will be the spot for yet another impressive Futurebirds performance on February 8th so no matter where you are in the country you can plan on seeing the Futurebirds rocking the crowd at a venue near you.


About the Band

Thomas Johnson, Payton Bradford, Carter King, Brannen Miles, Daniel Womack, and Dennis Love first got together as the Futurebirds in 2008 and released their debut album, Hampton's Lullaby in 2010. Their one of a kind sound has earned them the label psychedelic country, which seems appropriate given their Americana leanings and instrumentation combined with the heavy feedback and reverb which they employ in their songs. In 2013 the Futurebirds released their second studio album, Baba Yaga on the Fat Possum label and appeared to be on the verge of crossover mainstream success after making their second appearance at the huge music festival, Bonnaroo. Big things are on the horizon for Futurebirds and you have the opportunity to get omn their bandwagon early on when they hit the stage at a venue in your town.


Breakthrough

Most bands would kill to earn a spot at Bonnaroo and the chance to perform in front of hundreds of thousands of fans, and Futurebirds have had the chance to do it twice. This did not just happen over night. The release of their second EP Via Flamina in 2011 sparked a lot of interest in the band, allowing them to perform with some of the biggest names in alt-country and rock including Dead Confederate, Widespread Panic, Blitzen Trapper, The Whigs, Jonny Corndawg, Drive-by Truckers, and others. They also earned themselves a spot on the Bonnaroo Buzz Tour with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and after impressive showings on the tour were granted a slot at the Bonnaroo Festival. Even bigger things appear to be on the horizon for Futurebirds as they continue to record their one of a kind music and gain exposure to an ever widening audience.


The Experience

You have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see the talented group Futurebirds making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the band members pick up their instruments each other signalling that they are ready to begin. A hush falls over the crowd as the band busts in to some of their biggest hits, and plays them all one after another. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. The entire venue is drenched in feedback and reverb as Futurebirds bring their soaring harmonies and psychedelic sound to the forefront. You will be wondering if this is the future of country or the future of rock. Either way, you are witnessing one of the most exciting and fresh bands of the past ten years at the height of their powers, so sit back and enjoy. The high energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along. If there is just one concert you attend in the next few months make sure it is Futurebirds.


Trivia

Futurebirds hail from Athens, Georgia, a music hotbed that does not always get the credit it deserves in mainstream media. The college town produced some of the biggest alternative rock bands of the late Eighties and early Nineties including the legendary acts B-52s and R.E.M. More recently it has produced less commercially successful but similarly talented and influential independent acts like Futurebirds and the alternative metal husband and wife duo Jucifer. Futurebirds use mandolins, banjo, pedal steel guitar, percussion, acoustic and electric guitars, feedback, and heavy distortion and reverb to make a sound unlike anything else you can find in country or rock music. This is one live act you cannot afford to miss when they swing into your town.
