When The Low Anthem last graced the stage at Edmond Town Hall, in June 2011, the Live at ETH series was a fledgling newborn, and the band had just released its second album, Smart Flesh.
Since that release, the Providence, R.I.-based indie folk-rock quartet has headlined major festivals the world over, and played shows with fellow acclaimed artists like Iron and Wine, The National, Emmylou Harris, The Chieftains (at Carnegie Hall, no less), Grandaddy and Bruce Springsteen. They have appeared multiple times on both Later with Jools Holland and Late Show with David Letterman, and won MOJO magazine’s Breakthrough Award.
Esquire just spotlighted them in a piece entitled “15 Bands to Watch in 2014,” and their newest album is about to be released.
Low Anthem will return to Newtown for its next Live at ETH show on Friday, April 11.
Mark Barden and Alternate Universe will open.
Organized by Newtown resident Hayden Bates, all proceeds from this show will go towards the continued renovation of the Edmond Town Hall Theatre. Live at ETH has already helped with recent upgrades of the theater’s sound and power systems.
April 11 will be the sixth show in the series. Previous guests have included Bill Frisell and Sam Amidon, Brown Bird, Phosphorescent, and Fred Hersch.
Showtime will be 7 pm, with doors opening at 6:30. Tickets are $20 and will be on sale March 1.
Edmond Town Hall is at 45 Main Street. For additional information visit www.edmondtownhall.org.
