Kurt Vile and the Violators, the Fresh & Onlys, Steve Gunn

EMILEE BOOHER
9 pm., Friday May 10 | Sold out.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[PSYCH-ROCK] Kurt Vile won’t play venues like the Doug Fir for much longer. After the recent release of his highly acclaimed fifth album, Waking on a Pretty Daze, the Philadelphia-based artist launched the biggest year of his career. With a long string of sold-out tour dates ahead of him, plus a trip back to Portland for Pickathon this summer, Vile is quickly rising to the top of the list of contemporary American songwriters list. And for good reason: His new LP—a free-spirited fusion of quirky introspection, conversational lyrics and deeply meditative guitar riffs—seamlessly ebbs and flows through 11 spacious compositions that get better with each listen. Enjoy seeing him in smaller venues while you can, because he’s destined for the big stage.
