Felice Brothers To Play Two New Year's Shows, European Tour Underway
The Felice Brothers will wind down a very busy 2011 in style with two New Year's shows in the northeast, performing on December 30th at Daniel Street in Milford, CT and on December 31st for a hometown show at Club Helsinki in Hudson, NY. The band, who are currently overseas at the start of a 17-date European tour, wrapped up their eight and a half week long national US tour on November 19th. In addition to tours of North America and Australia, over the past year The Felice Brothers have performed at festivals including SXSW, Coachella, The Newport Folk Festival, The Calgary Folk Festival, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.
Celebration, Florida, The Felice Brothers' fourth LP, was released by Fat Possum in May and earned praise from publications including American Songwriter, The A.V. Club, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly ("The folk-rockers magnificently expand their musical palette..."), Maxim, Relix ("...a veritable novella for the ears"), SPIN, Time Out New York, and The Wall Street Journal ("...a hop, skip, and a jump ahead..."), among others. The band's two videos for album tracks "Ponzi" (directed by Ian Cinco) and "Fire At The Pageant" (directed by The Felice Brothers) can be seen here and here, respectively.
