Similar to Ariel Pink, Kurt Vile is an up and coming, buzz worthy musician who is just starting to gain the much needed attention they deserve. Working for years making lo-fi recordings not too many knew about or had access to, the former forklift truck driver created songs in the solitude of his bedroom.
The Philadelphia singer and guitar player, who tours with his band The Violators, recently released Smoke Ring For My Halo. They recently toured with J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and have been featured both in Spin, Pitchfork, and have also played SXSW in Austin.
Opening act is local and self described 3 piece stonegaze band True Widow.
