Forged in the fires of open mics, born in Seattle’s Conor Byrne’s pub, and ultimately shaped by the trials and tribulations of honest friendship, The Head and the Heart have emerged as something new, something somehow different but still fundamentally the same, as seen at The Anthem recently.

Music Park: The Head and the Heart @ DAR Constitution Hall — 10/22/16

“We have Capri Sun backstage.” With that provocative come on, The Head and the Heart wooed the packed crowd at DAR Constitution Hall.

Moving amidst a stage peppered with potted plants and festooned with hanging white balls acting as lights, a homey setting that might have been an ode to their latest album cover, the band members clapped and stomped through their best songs for the eager spectators.

The Head and the Heart return to the DAR Constitution Hall on Sunday, October 22nd, touting their just released third album, Signs of Light.

Get your tickets here. As a cool bonus, when you buy your ticket online, you get a free copy of Signs of Light, either a physical CD or a digital copy.

The well received first single, “All We Ever Knew”, currently sits at #6 on Billboard’s Alternative chart and reached #1 on the AAA chart. It’s an upbeat ode to realizing that sometimes ‘it’s time to wake up’ from a dream that isn’t working.

Entertainment Weekly says about Signs of Light, “The collection is their most electric and uplifting set yet.” After listening to it a couple of times myself, I tend to agree.

The Head and the Heart is an indie folk/rock band that formed in 2009 in Seattle. The band is Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar), Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar) – who is from Richmond, VA, Charity Rose Thielen (violin, banjo), Chris Zasche (bass), Kenny Hensley (piano) and Tyler Williams (drums).

I last caught The Head and the Heart perform live in DC in 2014 (at the Constitution Hall no less) and based on that experience, this is one show you don’t want to miss!

Declan McKenna, a British indie rocker, will open the show.

Don’t Miss: The Head and the Heart @ DAR Constitution Hall, 12/9/14

The Head and the Heart at the Columbia City Theater.

In 2010, Sub Pop Records signed the folk rock band The Head and the Heart and shortly after re-released their previously self-released album, The Head and the Heart.

The band formed in Seattle, Washington in 2009 from a collection of transplanted musicians, including Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitars) from Richmond, Virginia.

I had an opportunity to see them at the Firefly Music Festival in Delaware in 2012, but declined in favor of going to the beach. I had not listened to much of their music until their second album, Let’s Be Still, and now I’m looking forward to seeing them live.

Tickets are still available. Don’t be left out.
