When: Thu., June 8, 8:30 p.m. 2017
Picture this: You’re splayed out on a sandy beach. A warm breeze blows, condensation trickles down the side of a frosty libation and the placid, low-blood-pressure strains of Canadian singer-songwriter Bahamas emanates from your headphones. Real name Afie Jurvanen, his languid sensibilities make the perfect soundtrack for carefree summer nights. From the simplistic strumming of his debut, Pink Strat, to the bold embellishments of his most recent effort, Bahamas Is Afie, Jurvanen’s music retains the earnestness of unambiguous romance. This summer, he’ll join the master of all things casual, Jack Johnson, on a massive North American tour. Catch Bahamas on Thursday, June 8, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington.
