Filligar is a touring indie rock quartet hailed as “one of the best young bands in America.” The lineup – three Mathias brothers and Casey Gibson – remains unchanged since the band’s early days recording and performing as teenagers in Chicago. Live performance is the band’s lifeblood. They’ve been named one of music’s “Next Big Things” by SPIN Magazine and listed along with Wilco, Delta Spirit, and Heartless Bastards “One of America’s Top 8 Live Acts” (Boston’s RSLmusic blog). The U.S. Department of State recently honored Filligar with an appointment as cultural ambassadors representing American arts and values, and this summer the band will travel on a diplomatic trip to Eastern Europe for performances and outreach programs.Filligar has produced a prolific catalog of original music, called “a breath of fresh air” by the powerhouse Consequence of Sound” and recognized by the American Society of Composers, Authors, & Publishers (ASCAP) as “of prestige value.” Their latest release The Nerve was nominated for a 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Rock Album.They have a new LP to be released in the coming months.Tour Dates5/21/2013  Denver, CO  -  Larimer Lounge5/24/2013  Iowa City, IA - The Mill5/25/2013  Geneva, MN - Bella Music Festival5/26/2013  Chillicothe, IL - Summer Camp Music Festival5/28/2013  Cleveland, OH - Beachland Tavern5/29/2013  Philadelphia, PA - North Star Bar5/30/2013  Washington, DC - Living Social - 918 F Street5/31/2013  Asbury Park, NJ - Wonder Bar6/1/2013    New York, NY - Gramercy Theatre6/2/2013    Burlington, VT - Club Metronome6/4/2013    New Haven, CT - Cafe Nine6/5/2013    Cambridge, MA - TT the Bear's6/6/2013    Hunter, NY - Mountain Jam Festival6/7/2013    Pittsburgh, PA - Smiling Moose6/8/2013    Columbus, OH - Woodlands Tavern7/27/2013  Chicago - Taste of Lincoln Ave
