Show Preview: Psych Folk Hero Kurt Vile Plays Stubb’s Friday 4/15 (ATX)

Onstage, psych folk songwriter Kurt Vile hides behind his hair, quietly delivering impressively nuanced and sprawling songs over introspective, hazy arrangements. Similarly quietly, Vile has released some of the best and most revered albums of the past few years. Despite his tendency to avoid the spotlight, both literally and figuratively, Vile manages to draw in listens and concert-goers with his guitar prowess and genuine live performers. With his understated charm and mellow demeanor, Vile allows the songs to take center stage, providing show attendees an opportunity to lose themselves completely in his atmospheric songs. Get your tickets for next Friday’s show at Stubb’s right here, and below, watch the video for “Pretty Pimpin” from Kurt Vile’s newest album b’lieve i’m goin down.
