Kurt Vile

Guitarist, singer-songwriter Kurt Vile will be performing at The Echoplex on Tuesday, May 7. Formed in Philadelphia, Vile first debuted a solo album in 2008, Childish Prodigy, while at the same time collaborating with The War On Drugs. Since 2011 Vile has since been capturing listeners’ attention with his fourth album, Smoke Ring for My Halo, reaching the charts on the Billboard Top 200. Just last month he released his fifth album, Wakin on a Pretty Daze, his best work yet! Catch the show to hear some new tracks as well as some of his classics. Supporting acts will include The Fresh & Onlys and Steve Gunn.
