Big Thief plays The Hangar on the Hudson in Troy Thursday, Aug. 4. Big Thief/Facebook
TROY — The Hangar on The Hudson welcomes Brooklyn-based Big Thief for a concert on Thursday, Aug. 4. Doors open at 7 p.m., for the 8 p.m. show.
According a July 23 post on The Hangar’s Facebook page, Big Thief was recently dubbed one of Rolling Stone’s top 10 bands to look out for and is currently touring in support of its debut album, “Masterpiece,” released by Saddle Creek in late May.
According to the biography posted on the label’s website, “Masterpiece, is filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words. Adrianne’s voice and guitar playing speak of rich emotional territory with grace and insight.
“Adrianne met her longtime musical partner, guitarist and singer, Buck Meek, in Brooklyn a few years ago, and they quickly formed a creative bond tempered by the experience of traveling and performing for months on end in old dive bars, yards, barns, and basements together.
“Now, as a full rock and roll band, with Buck on guitar, Max Oleartchik on bass, and James Krivchenia on drums, they bring a steady wildness, giving the songs an even deeper layer of nostalgia.”
Tickets are $10 (plus $1.34 service fee) and are available for purchase through Brown Paper Tickets at m.bpt.me/event/2562851.
