The Head and the Heart, Ryan Bingham, Dar Williams book Spokane concerts

by


The Head and the Heart sold out the Knitting Factory a few years ago, and packed one of the Festival at Sandpoint gigs two summer ago. Now the Seattle folk-rock crew is coming around again in support of their upcoming third album, Signs of Light

The Head and the Heart will headline the INB Performing Arts Center this time around, at a show slated for Monday, Oct. 10. Tickets are $36 and $53.50, and go on sale this Friday, June 10, at 10 am, via TicketsWest.com, by phone at 800-325-SEAT, or at TicketsWest outlets. 

The band had a meteoric rise from loose jams in Seattle into a tight live band. The first single on the new album, "All We Ever Knew," has a bombastic vibe sure to go over well with fans. There are a lot of "la-la-las" and some definite Fleetwood Mac vibes (to my ears). You can judge for yourself: 

Also coming to town is roots dude Ryan Bingham, the mighty fine singer/songwriter, for a show at the Knitting Factory on Sunday, Sept. 4. The guy was nominated for an Oscar for the great stuff he gave Jeff Bridges to sing in Crazy Heart, and he's made a bunch of solid albums blending country, folk and rock vibes. 

Tickets for Bingham also go on sale Friday at 10 am, by calling 866-468-7623, online at TicketWeb.com or Sp.KnittingFactory.com. Tickets are $22.50 in advance, $25 day of show.

But wait, there's more! Folk-pop killer Dar Williams is dropping by Spokane, too. She'll play Chateau Rive at the Flour Mill on Wednesday, Aug. 3. Tickets are on sale now, and are $30. 

Here's a sample of her style, from a nice live clip:
