Kurt Vile - Loading Zones


Known for his solo work and as the former lead guitarist of rock band, The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile is stopping by Kalamazoo for a show in the Beer Garden on Friday, July 19th! Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying "Bottle It In", which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips. Every song, whether it’s a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos. "Bottle It In" is about place only insofar as it is about the people in those places: friends and family, band mates and music heroes, colleagues and collaborators. As Vile prepares for another round of lengthy tours and countless shows, these songs should prove good company, reminders of the love and responsibility he has toward those he leaves at home and those he meets along the way. Don't miss an unforgettable evening in the Bell's Beer Garden this summer with Kurt Vile!
