9PM – Tobin Sprout
Painter, illustrator, author, songwriter and former Guided By Voices guitarist, TOBIN SPROUT reinvents his craft with a stark and poignant solo album, Empty Horses, a dramatic and unexpected departure from his previous work. The album is a meticulously observed study of America and Americana (not the music, but the state of mind). An alternative American Songbook, if you will, a collection of laments to simpler times and the struggle for what’s right, peppered with an examination of faith and the search for a sense of justice. In Guided By Voices, (1986-1997, 2011-2014) Sprout penned classic songs including “Atom Eyes”, “It’s Like Soul Man”, “Gleemer”, “A Good Flying Bird”, “14 Cheerleader Coldfront”, and released solo albums on Matador, Burger and Fire Records. On tour, Sprout will be joined by his longtime band with Tommy Schichtel, Steve Vermillion and Gary Vermillion.
The Strapping Fieldhands are Philadelphia’s original purveyors of fractured psychedelic shanty rock.
