Kurt Vile @ Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham)
Kurt Vile

A weekend of Kurt Vile begins tonight, Friday (6/15), at Maxwell's in Hoboken where Kurt will open and headline a sold out show at the initimate NJ venue. If you're going, especially all the way from NYC, keep in mind that the venue tells us Kurt goes on at 7pm! Don't be late (no opener), or you may find yourself confused and trying to get in to the sold out mewithoutyou show that starts right after Kurt's crowd is cleared from the room. The good news here is that after Kurt you have plenty of time to get from Hoboken to Brooklyn in time to catch Caveman, Frankie Rose and more at the BV show at Music Hall of Williamsburg!

Don't have a ticket to Maxwell's... don't have money even? You're in luck! Kurt's 2nd show of the weekend is a free one at Central Park Summerstage on Saturday (6/16), but don't be late to that one either because Kurt opens the show for Dawes, and that one starts at 7pm too! (getting there early will also guarantee you a spot at the free show that is first come, first served.)

For Dawes, Central Park is one of two shows in the area this weekend, as they're also on the bill of the Clearwater Festival which goes down in Croton Point Park in Croton, NY on Saturday and Sunday. Deer Tick, Alejandro Escovedo, Punch Brothers, Bela Fleck, Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, Ani Difranco and many more also play in Croton.

After NYC, Kurt takes a few days off before getting on a plane to begin a summer tour of Europe. All of his dates are listed below...

That's what I get for not reading. Just sat through almost a complete Dawes set thinking that Kurt Vile was the headliner. WORST SHOW EVER! Who is Kurt Vile's agent? How could he possibly have him warm up for these ass clowns? Actual Dawes lyric:

I want love to stretch it's fingers wide
And touch on all our wandering parts.
Come sit by my Californian side
With your Carolina heart.

If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.
If you let me be your anchor
I will hold you down.
