The Districts headline the 9:30 Club on Wednesday, April 13, in support of their new album Great American Painting, which is out now via Fat Possum Records.
Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets for you to see the show!
Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, The Strokes, Broken Social Scene) and recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, Great American Painting was deeply informed by the two months that Districts vocalist/guitarist Rob Grote spent living in a cabin in Washington state at the height of the pandemic. Mostly made up of songs sketched by Grote during his time at the cabin, Great American Painting marks a significant departure from 2020’s acclaimed You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere.
“The last album almost felt like a recording project of my own rather than a band affair, so from the start, the goal was to focus on what’s always worked well with us: an element of simplicity that’s still very powerful, with a lot of visceral rock-and-roll energy to it,” Rob said.
