- Band announces GROEZROCK appearance + Amsterdam headline show in May -
On the heels of a raucous December tour in Europe and the UK, Larry and His Flask have already set their sights on returning to these shores in May 2014. The band will be playing GROEZROCK as well as headlining Paradiso in Amsterdam, with many more shows to be confirmed shortly.
NEWLY ANNOUNCED MAY 2014 TOUR DATES:
02-May-2014: Meerhout (BE) @ Groezrock
22-May-2014: Amsterdam (NL) @ Paradiso (Tickets to go on sale Wednesday 18th December)
In addition to their just-completed run, the five-piece from Oregon, USA memorably supported Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls in the UK earlier this year in support of their latest album BY THE LAMPLIGHT (Xtra Mile Recordings), and looks forward to raising the roof again when they return this coming Spring.
For the uninitiated, Larry and His Flask make music that lies somewhere between a barn raising and a mosh pit. The New York Times calls them "uncommonly joyous" and "deviously astute", while their live show is a "breathless, polymorphous good time." Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized line-up with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed - unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator. Performances see members careening wildly across the stage with instruments, narrowly avoiding harrowing collisions amongst themselves and frequently trading said instruments mid-song while still maintaining pitch-perfect 4-part harmonies.
