Damn Tall Buildings
April 15, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Carter Family for the millennial generation…The band coined the term ‘guerrilla roots’ to describe its sound, which draws on early-20th-century Americana/bluegrass music, ‘repurposed for a modern audience.’” (The Boston Globe) Damn Tall Buildings was born in January of 2013, busking on Newbury Street in Boston, MA. Through street performing, this dynamic quartet formed the foundation for the fully-immersive and truly electrifying performance for which they are known today. Priding themselves on their robust tour schedule, DTB has performed at numerous venues and festivals across the continental U.S. – most recently including GreyFox Bluegrass Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass On The Bogs, Vinegrass, and FreshGrass Festival (where they were awarded 2nd place in the 2016 band competition). During the span of these tours, they’ve shared the stage with artists such as The California Honeydrops, The Dustbowl Revival, Sierra Hull, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Gangstagrass, and many more. The band has recorded and released two studio recordings since its inception. Their latest release, Damn Tall Buildings (2015) explores more modern production while staying true to their soulful storytelling and foot-stomping grooves. Released July ‘15 to a sold-out crowd at the legendary Club Passim, the self-titled EP quickly bolstered the band’s success on a national level. Their first release, Cure-All (2014) successfully captures unparalleled energy created in a live setting. In the 11 track album, DTB “rambles from ‘Portland to Richmond’ as they try to leave the ‘Wichita Blues’ back in the hotel room and a Celtic air offers a foundation for the flying notes that rise like the oncoming water in the ‘Ballad of Nigel Williams’…Damn Tall Buildings have a way of making old songs feel modern.” (The Alternate Root) Both releases are available for purchase & streaming on iTunes, Spotify, bandcamp, and most everywhere else music is available on the world wide web.
