Celebrate Kurt Vile’s New EP Tomorrow at Webster HallNovember 10th, 2011
Lo-fi singer-songwriter-guitarist Kurt Vile, began collaborating with Adam Granduciel as the War on Drugs in 2003. They self-released an EP in 2005 and soon after the band became a full-time gig. But Vile had other things he wanted to say musically, so he decided to go it alone and put out Constant Hitmaker, a collection of home recordings, in 2009. The disc was well received and his music was compared to Bruce Springsteen’s. Not bad, right? Well since then the Philly musician has put out other stellar albums, including this year’s Smoke Ring for My Halo, featuring pounding drums and plenty of guitars. Vile (above, performing “Jesus Fever”) has been prolific in 2011. In fact a new EP, So Outta Reach, came out just two days ago. And you can celebrate its release when Vile, backed by the Violators, plays Webster Hall tomorrow night.
