CONTEST OVER Win tickets NOW to see The Lumineers at the Grey Eagle, Wednesday 8/15


If you want to see the sold-out Lumineers, you’re seriously in luck. We’ve got two tickets for the sold-out show at the Grey Eagle next Wednesday.

Want to win? Just be the first to tell us in a comment which of the three members of the band was the last to join. Please use your first and last name so we know who to tell the Grey Eagle to hold tickets for!

In 2011, an eponymous, self-recorded EP led to a self-booked tour, and before long The Lumineers started attracting devout fans, first across the Western US, then back in their old East Coast stamping grounds. Young, old and in-between, they’re drawn by songs like “Ho Hey” and “Stubborn Love,” Americana-inflected barnburners in the vein of the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons. They’re drawn by songs like “Slow it Down” and “Dead Sea,” slow, sultry ballads that suggest the raw revelations of Jeff Buckley and Ryan Adams. They’re drawn by the live Lumineers experience—a coming-together in musical solidarity against isolation, adversity, and despair.

The roots revival of the last few yeas has primed listeners for a new generation of rustic, heart-on-the-sleeve music—the kind that nods to tradition while setting off into uncharted territory. The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics. It will all be on display soon, on the band’s first full-length album, due in March.

Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineers have found their sound when the world needs it most.

8pm. $15 advance / $18 day of show.
