Laid-back psych-pop musician Kurt Vile and his band The Violators are stopping by Cincinnati this fall.
Vile plays the Andrew J Brady Music Center on Oct. 16 in support of his latest album, (watch my moves). Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. June 10 at ticketmaster.com.
Vile, a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter — formerly the lead guitarist of band The War on Drugs before embarking on a solo career — also acts as multi-instrumentalist and producer on (watch my moves), his ninth album and the first released in partnership with Verve Records.
“I’m always thinking about catchy music, even though it’s fried, or sizzled, out,” he says in a release about the tour and record. “It’s my own version of a classic thing — it’s moving forward and backward at the same time.”
According to the release, the tunes on (watch my moves) come “from a period when Vile, whose touring and recording schedule during the 2010s was seemingly constant, stayed in one place” and find Vile “puzzling out pointillistic lyrics, dreaming up spit-shined choruses, and checking in on other dimensions.”
