Tomorrow: Ezra Furman @ Beachland!

I first saw Ezra Furman back in April 2009 and I've been waiting for him/them to come back ever since.  Now with a phenomenal new album out (pre-order it here), I'm as excited as ever for Wednesday's show (Beachland Tavern $10 or $12 day of show).  One of my favorite songs from this new album is called Wild Feeling.  Stunning.  Here's a version of this song from Daytrotter:

Ezra Furman The Harpoons

The openers should be great too, especially Tristen.  Here are more details than you'll probably care to read.

Ezra Furman & The Harpoons debuted with 2007's Banging Down the Doors, prompting NPR's "All Songs Considered" to note: "Furman is a great young voice emitting sarcastic and clever Midwestern angst with a lot of intelligence and a lot of heart." Between albums, the band hastoured non-stop, performing with Lou Reed at SXSW, Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Walkmen, Matisyahu, Spoon and Delta Spirit, and appeared at major festivals such as Lollapalooza, FM4 Fest in St. Polten, Austria and the prestigious Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain.

More on Tristen:

A Chicago native who now calls Nashville home, Tristen is on tour in support of her recently released album. Charlatans At The Garden Gate has been met with wide ranging praise. The Onionwrites that Tristen"has crafted a confident, poignant folk-popdebut that never wants for hooks, and manages to undercut its sing-songiness at every turn with unflinching lyrics and mature songwriting." According toBust, "she caught up to her contemporaries and surpassed them in one fell swoop.As soon as the vocals kick in on the opener 'Eager for Your Love,' it's impossible not to listen to this record all the way through. Man this girl can sing."The home townNashville Scenenoted that "With or without Tristen's acute capacity to portray relationships and ideology gone wrong, Charlatans is a musical document billowing over with rich, vintage hues and irrepressible hooks, her reverence for the lions of pop music and confident sense of self all meted out in the same breath."

More on Apache Relay:

Nashville indie-rock band The Apache Relay are on tour to support the release of their second album, American Nomad, out April 12th via Thirty Tigers. American Nomad is a modern and young roots-rock collection produced by Nielson Hubbard. Their debut album, 1988, was released in 2009, and produced by Doug Williams, best known for his authentically raw approach with the Avett Brothers. The record cracked the door to reveal the band's capabilities, and Paste Magazine named it an "Auspicious Debut" and highlighted the band as "Best of What's Next."
