Fairfield, CT – These United States will be playing at Fairfield’s Stage One on Saturday, June 5th. The show starts at 10:30pm. Doors and Bar open at 10:00pm.
These United States surrender themselves to unbridled rock and roll exuberance: ringing guitars, thundering drums, desperate yearning bordering on hope. By turns larger-than-life and disarmingly intimate, this is folk in the truest sense – a record of the moment, of the cultural and emotional forces that animate everyday existence somewhere down below the headlines. (But never apart from them.) And These United States play it the way folk was meant to be played: hard, fast, big, slow, long, loud, loose, at last unburdened. They play like they mean it. Like there’s never been a better time to be alive.
After playing 400 shows and releasing 3 albums over the last two years, the DC/Kentucky band is surely rumbling towards the next benchmarks in a long string of critical acclaim, including dozens of “Best of” 2008 + 2009 nominations, top 20 on CMJ, and features on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “Mountain Stage,” Spin, Paste, Filter, NY Times, Village Voice, Brooklyn Vegan, JamBase, The Onion, Daytrotter, My Old Kentucky Blog, KEXP, WOXY, KCRW, WXPN and WFUV. They’ve also played High Sierra Music Fest, Celebrate Brooklyn, Glastonbury, Gathering of the Vibes, Monolith Festival, and Forecastle Festival.
