KEXP and Abbey Arts present
CATHEDRALS XXII:

Damien Jurado “Over Rainbows” Tour

"Early mornings, longer nights. Flowers that begin to open and stretch towards the sun. Life peeking its head after a long slumber. Long stretches of roads leading somewhere, nowhere. Friends, strangers, young and old gather together to see and to hear. Together the sun, rain and sky making something glorious.

This spring, Damien Jurado will be hitting the road with some friends for the “Over Rainbows” tour. Not to worry, the 50 State Tour has not been forgotten or abandoned, just put aside for this short while to be picked up again later. “Over Rainbows” will be hitting fifteen cities this spring. "

ABOUT DAMIEN JURADO: SPOTIFY | WEBSITE
Urban folk singer/songwriter Damien Jurado quietly built up one of the strongest catalogs on the indie scene, earning high critical praise yet somehow never quite getting his proper due. Nick Drake had a definite impact on much of his work, but Jurado modeled his career on more idiosyncratic, unpredictable figures like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Randy Newman -- songwriters who followed their own muse wherever it took them, whether fans and critics enjoyed it or not. His independence was born at least in part from the influence of punk, and one of the results was a concern for emotional authenticity that led him to delve into other people's lives instead of his own. Many of Jurado's best songs spun concise, literate tales of quiet, everyday despair, which often earned him comparisons to short story writer Raymond Carver. But his storytelling bent -- not to mention his ambivalence toward confessional material -- arose from a stronger grounding in traditional folk than spiritual compatriots like Elliott Smith or Cat Power. And with detours into pop, roots rock, full-fledged electric indie rock, psychedelia, and even found-sound experiments, Jurado ensured that his body of work was impossible to accurately pin down.

OTHER IMPORTANT & UNUSUAL EVENT DETAILS:

SEATING:
To create a "giant living room" effect we offer an unusual concert experience with informal seating on the floor up front surrounding the stage and lots of pews, benches, and chairs around the space.

We highly recommend you bring blankets and cushions to create a more comfortable experience whether sitting on the floor or seats. Quiet and non-messy snacks/picnics are allowed. No outside alcohol please.

NOISE:
Please actually silence all devices. Turn off vibrate, rings, etc.
NO CAMERAS WITH MECHANICAL SHUTTERS (This goes for Press too unless approved to shoot during applause only.) That means silent digital cameras/photos are ok but we really recommend you enjoy most of the show through your own 'retina screens'.

Anyone exhibiting loud or disruptive behavior during the event will be asked to leave.

Absolutely no talking during the performances please, this room is very live acoustically and everyone will hear you. :-) We are unable to provide a separate room for viewing this event if you are not able to be silent, so please plan accordingly before purchasing tickets. These shows are very very pin drop quiet so please consider that when deciding what ages are appropriate. No cry room available at this venue and even voices in the lobby will be heard in the concert space.
