The War On Drugs & Sturgill Simpson

28th July 2018 - Saturday 18:00

Sensational indie rock and country artists The War on Drugs and Sturgill Simpson are bringing their signature sounds to the BB&T Pavilion!

The War on Drugs was formed in Philadelphia in 2005 by Adam Granduciel, David Hartley, Kurt Vile, and Kyle Lloyd. The band’s been through many line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Adam (vocals, guitars, harmonica, keyboards, and samplers), David (bass guitar, and electric guitars), Robbie Bennett (keyboards, piano, and guitars), Charlie Hall (drums and organ), Jon Natchez (saxophone and keyboards), and Anthony LaMarca (guitar and keyboards). While their musical style can be broadly classified as indie rock, it’s best described as blend of Heartland rock (a subgenre of rock music - exemplified by the commercial success of singer-songwriters Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, Tom Petty, and John Mellencamp – that’s characterized by a straightforward musical style, a concern with the average, blue-collar American life, and a conviction that rock music has a social or communal purpose beyond just entertainment), Americana (contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, blues, roots rock, R&B, folk, and bluegrass, resulting in a distinctive roots oriented sound), and neo psychedelia. They’ve had a stellar career with 4 studio albums, 2 extended plays, and 14 singles.
