Influential songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristin Hersh, leader of the indie rock band Throwing Muses and the noise rock power trio 50 Foot Wave, is on the road with her highly acclaimed Throwing Muses release, Sun Racket. The touring trio is a hard-hitting super group: Fred Abong, bass player from Throwing Muses (who opens solo, promoting his new LP, Yellow Throat) and Rob Ahlers, drummer of 50 Foot Wave. These electric trio shows are loud, tight and intense, featuring material from across Kristin’s thirty-year career.
Rolling Stone on Sun Racket: “If I were a better dreamer you’d be a dream come true” Kristin Hersh seethes over a crunching guitar riff, swimming through dark waters and making her way back to shore.
"Lean, Immersive, and groove-heavy, tapping the vein of hardscrabble psychedelia that defines their best work" - Pitchfork
