Boston folk are slow to pick faves and don’t easily suffer fools. Their teams, their politics, social discourse and of course, their music all fall to a collectively discerning eye, or in this case, ear. This is why fairly fledgling Beantown champs, The Ballroom Thieves are worth serious consideration everywhere and anywhere else.
The Ballroom Thieves
The Ballroom Thieves are performing in Denver, Colorado this weekend (https://www.facebook.com/events/989757557708115/). This will be a unique and an exciting experience to catch this rock-folk trio particularly at this intimate Denver venue (Larimer Lounge). When I think folk, I typically think perhaps of enjoying thoughtful inspirational music on the couch. Ballroom Thieves is that plus upbeat, rock flair in a concert hall -- armed
The Ballroom Thieves. Maybe you haven’t heard of this band – I hadn’t until I received the album. But that’s okay…this band is going to be around for a while so you’ll get your chance. If you go to your local record store, chances are you might find an album, but it’s unlikely. The band has only put out two EPs since they formed in 2011. Their first EP, The Devil & The Deep released in 2012. The band’s latest, and second, EP released October 4, 2013.
