When: Tue., June 3, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Kurt Vile’s fifth record, Wakin' on a Pretty Daze, released last year, is perhaps the onetime member of the War on Drugs’ most confounding, yet rewarding work. More freeform than his 2011 breakthrough, Smoke Ring for My Halo, Vile’s latest is laced with psychedelic accents, unconventional composition and equally dizzying, but affecting songwriting. It is a pretty daze, indeed. Kurt Vile and the Violators play the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington this Tuesday, June 3. Guitarist Steve Gunn opens.
Price: $17/20. AA
