The Americans are ready for a night of Americana Rock n’ Roll that you will not soon forget in Chicago, coming at you on Friday, October 21. Opening for the legendary Stephen Kellogg, the two acts will join forces for an incredible evening of music, storytelling and good vibes.
Showcasing an undeniably fresh approach to a tried-and-true genre with unparalleled proficiency the group who hails from Los Angeles is one to watch. With a string of dates this Fall the shows end with a headlining show at the famous Bitter End in New York City.
Upon hearing their new album “Stand True” — the band’s latest 11-song, sophomore studio LP (via Loose Music) — it’s evident why revered producer T Bone Burnett raved, calling them, “genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music for this century. And it sounds even better this century.”
The band’s distinctive, powerful works have captured the attention of a number of stars. They’ve backed Nick Cave, Lucinda Williams, Ashley Monroe, and Devendra Banhart, and twice joined Ryan Bingham on national tours. They worked closely with Jack White and T Bone Burnett, joining Nas, Elton John, and Alabama Shakes in the PBS primetime series American Epic. Their live show, honed over many hundreds of performances, is something to behold.
Head out to the Old Town School of Folk Music and see why The Americans have everyone talking.
