Good Kids Sprouting Horns Summer Mini-Tour

Good Kids Sprouting Horns Summer Mini-Tour

Good Kids Sprouting Horns is a genuine alt-folk band.  The "genuine" part is worth noting because while many bands approach the folk genre with determination and, often, some degree of kitsch, Good Kids Sprouting Horns seem to belong there.  Despite their humble format (guitar, drums, and a small fleet of retro keyboards), they push folk to its boundaries, with quiet, reflective passages, momentous climaxes, engaging licks and harmonies, and song structures that lean on anything from pop to post-rock as much as folk.

If you haven't caught them live yet, here's your chance - the band embarks on a summer mini-tour on July 23rd.  You can see them off tonight at the SPACE Gallery or on the 23rd at Slainte, both in Portland, before they hit the road.  (Good luck with North Carolina in August, guys!  I'm sweating at the thought.)

7.23 Portland, ME - Slainte
7.24 Winooski, VT - The Monkey House
7.26 Somewhere in NY - House Show
7.27 Rochester, NY - Boulder Coffee Co
7.29 Pittsburgh, PA - Howler's Coyote Cafe
7.30 Richmond, VA - The Triple
8.1 Durham, NC - The Pinhook
8.2 New York, NY - Pianos
