THE HEAD AND THE HEART
Tuesday, April 11
Tickets on sale Friday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. PST
Seattle-based, street-to-stardom phenomenon The Head And The Heart will take the stage at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas in The Linq Promenade on Tuesday, April 11 at 8:30 p.m. The band makes the ritualistic pilgrimage from Indio, Calif. to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas before the two famed festival weekends.
Hot off an early 2017 international tour that included performances in Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom, The Head And The Heart return stateside with their 2017 “Signs of Light” tour. The group began as street performers in Seattle, energetically broadcasting the tunes that would one day, in 2011, comprise their debut album on local Sub Pop records. As the band worked tirelessly to amass a crowd in large open spaces, they realized that a movement was forming.
“There is a certain level of confidence gained from having such an amazing fan base,” says singer, songwriter, vocalist and percussionist Jonathan Russell. “You start to trust yourself more. When we were busking, we were filling so much space to keep the listener from walking away. Now we are in a very different situation.”
The Head And The Heart was formed when Russell and vocalist, songwriter, guitar player and percussionist Josiah Johnson met at an open mic night they had been frequenting. Rounding out the group are Tyler Williams (drums), Kenny Hensley (keyboards), Charity Rose Thielen (vocals, violin, banjo) and Chris Zasche (bass). The connection was instant; the group even moved into the same residence to be sure that they could catch lightning in a bottle at any moment inspiration struck.
“We wanted to write songs that felt bigger, and didn’t need to be so frantic,” adds Johnson. “I think for the most part we wanted to record an album that sounds like the way we play now.”
Doors for The Head And The Heart at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas open at 7:30 pm. This show is for ages 18+. Tickets start at $31 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public on Friday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. PST at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2iDTtII.
