Boy, do we have a treat for anyone who is lucky enough to stop by SPACE on the 22nd of November. After a triumphant debut performance at SPACE’s 5th Anniversary Party back in April, St. Paul and the Broken Bones will be making their second appearance at our venue, and we could not be more excited!
They’ll be accompanied by the Strumbellas, the Juno Award nominated Canadian folk rockers. It’s not everyday that you have the opportunity to attend a show that is filled with the energy of two highly entertaining groups who really know how to get a crowd going. The Strumbellas’ set will highlight their recently released album We Still Move on Dance Floors, produced by Ryan Hadlock of the Lumineers, which can be streamed here.
St. Paul and the Broken Bones hail from Alabama and carry a sound with them that is heavily influenced by the music that emanates from behind Southern church doors.
SPACE’s friend and neighbor Jeremy Vanatta, who liked the band so much when he saw them back in April that he hosted them at his Fourth of July block party, elegantly describes their style as, “Part church revival, part soul, part dance party, and part rock and roll. St. Paul’s music refuses to let you sit down. Each time I have seen them, not only are the extroverts out cutting a rug, but the wallflowers in the group, normally hugging the walls holding a long-neck, are also compelled to get out and dance. It just feels wrong not to. You will go home from the show hungry for more and checking websites to see when they are back in town, or wondering if you could justify the drive tomorrow night to the next city.”
With a stylistic resemblance to their good friends and contemporaries the Alabama Shakes, St. Paul and The Broken Bones are a can’t-miss show here at SPACE. Tickets are just $12 a pop, and are available here. The show will be set up as standing room only and we’ll open up the floor for patrons to dance the night away. If you are still not convinced, check out their first performance at SPACE in April.
We’re ready to dance!
