Genre-defying evolution is the hallmark of post-punk legends WIRE’s career. Now, nearly forty years into its existence, Wire is breathing new life into small, curated festivals. Each is unique in format but all are built on artistic kinship across divergent musical styles, influences, and generations. That festival is DRILL.
DRILL has already left its mark in Seattle, Chicago, London and more major cities, and will conquer Los Angeles next. For a full list of DRILL tour stops and more information on DRILL Los Angeles, vist the DRILL website here.
“…The concept is simple, it’s an unpretentious city festival featuring artists from across all genres actively curated by Wire with a lot of input from local, informed media partners (in the case of London, The Quietus; in the case of Seattle, KEXP) The concerts take place in small venues with great sound systems. There are no big ticket acts playing for over inflated fees. Wire go for the best in upcoming local talent combined with friends who just want to be part of it.” ~ Colin Newman
Wire is touring in support of Silver/Lead the band’s 15th studio album. It arrives on the 40th anniversary of their debut performance with an official release date of March 31. Grab it here via Pink Flag.
