Assembly of Dust Play Hometown Show at The Bowery BallroomApril 12th, 2013
Frontman Reid Genauer, previously of Strangefolk, formed Assembly of Dust in 2002 while still studying for his MBA at Cornell University. The self-titled debut album was essentially a solo effort but Genauer (vocals and guitar) gathered Andy Herrick (drums), John Leccese (bass), Adam Terrell (lead guitar) and Nate Wilson (keys) to flesh out the new tunes when played live. Since then the R&B- and blues-based group has earned a sizable traveling fan base and a reputation as a good-times band while playing lively sets at festivals like Bonnaroo, Langerado and the Newport Folk Festival. The quintet’s fourth studio full-length, Sun Shot (stream it below), came out last month. But the best way to experience Assembly of Dust (above, playing “Sun Shot” for MoBoogie) is live, so don’t miss out when they come home to play The Bowery Ballroom tonight.
