This is a new series on the Granada blog that features the opening bands. Opening bands can be a pleasant surprise. One day you are watching a band with a couple hundred people and the next thing you know they’re playing the Grammys. MGMT Frightened Rabbit, The Avett Brothers and Matt & Kim have all been opening bands here. So come early! You never know, you could be seeing the next big thing.
The Head and the Heart may be the next big band to come from the Pacific Northwest. The band formed after the two main songwriters met at an open-mic in Seattle. It took just 2 years after that meeting for the pair to form The Head and the Heart, sign to Sub Pop Records, and release their debut. Their music compares nicely to Dr. Dog and Crosby Stills Nash & Young (whom the band credits as their main influence). Textured harmonies, earnest piano that weave together layers of Americana. Come see why music critics are calling The Head and the Heart the “next great band from Seattle”.
They are opening up The Walkmen Saturday March 5th.
