Join us for New Year's Eve with Calexico!December 4, 2013
The Fillmore is pleased to announce CALEXICO on New Year’s Eve, December 31st at 9:00 p.m.
The celebrated Tucson, Arizona band Calexico will join us to ring in the New Year, continuing their trek in support of their critically-heralded release entitled Algiers which Mojo Magazine called “the album of their lives,” and Pitchfork called “impeccably conceived and imaginatively crafted.”
Algiers, which core duo Joey Burns and John Convertino wrote and recorded in a converted church in the outskirts New Orleans neighborhood for which the record is named, is the band’s first album in four years and a critical favorite. The album is recognizably classic Calexico with the band’s distinctive style revitalized and reborn by their experience recording in New Orleans. The influence isn’t necessarily sonically evident, but there’s a strange, powerful connection to the sounds that have always colored their own, influences that founding member Joey Burns has previously identified as including “Portugese fado, 50’s jazz, gypsy or romani music and its offshoots, 60’s surf and twang from Link Wray to country’s Duane Eddy, the spaghetti western epics of Ennio Morricone and dark indie rock singer songwriters.”
Tickets for New Year’s Eve will go on sale this Sunday, December 8th at 10:00 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000, and in-person at the Fillmore box office (1805 Geary Blvd.).
