The Felice Brothers To Open For Conor Oberst March 22 At Track 29

Thursday, March 2, 2017

The Felice Brothers will open for and play with Conor Oberst March 22 at Track 29.  Touring in support of their new album, Life In The Dark, the tour includes stops in Kansas City, Memphis, Houston, New Orleans, Chattanooga, and Atlanta, among others. 

Review for The Felice Brothers:  

Produced by The Felice Brothers, Life In The Dark was recorded in a rented garage-turned-recording-studio on Letterbox Farm, a working farm in New York State’s verdant Hudson Valley in Columba County. Engineered by James Felice, mixed by Jeremy Bakofen and James Felice, the album was mastered at Gateway Studios.

The nine songs on Life In The Dark finds lyricist Ian Felice continuing to explore modern life in a complicated and divided America, through a cynical and occasionally heartbroken lens, in the tradition of songwriters like John Prine and Michael Hurley. 

Musically the band—Ian on guitars and vocals; his brother James on accordion, keyboards and vocals; Greg Farley on fiddle and Josh Rawson on bass—incorporates their expansive knowledge of American folk music — both its creators and what makes it so compelling and enduring — with other elements of contemporary music — classic rock and blues. 

Created by the band’s bassist Josh Rawson, the video for “Aerosol Ball” features an entertaining, re-purposed collage of stock footage from the 1950s and 60s, interspersing pin-up girls, boys stuffed phone booths, mod-dancers and more. 

Life After Dark follows The Felice Brothers’ 2014 release Favorite Waitress.
