$10 advance / $12 at the door
9:00 doors / 10:00 show
Hooks, Harmony and Heart.
Lush American Indie Rock and Roll.
Residing in the overlap between Alternative, Rock, Indie, Powerpop, and Americana on the Venn Diagram, The Rationales bring to mind such acts as Wilco, Radiohead and Nada Surf, while always sounding entirely like themselves.
Summer Villains is like if Johnny Cash spent a lot of time covering Beatles songs.
GLENN YODER and THE WESTRN STATES
Like Neil Young and Alejandro Escovedo, Yoder glides between guitar-driven rock and folk-tinged acoustic balladry. "Glenn Yoder, the former Cassette, rocks out a bit more than in past turns, but still retains the charm that made his former band one of Boston's brightest."
More on the Rationales....
DREAM OF FIRE, the new EP from the Rationales, started with the solid songwriting the band is known for and added a sense of confidence and skill gained from playing live in support of The Distance In Between which allowed the new EP to recorded in a single 24 hour period in late 2013. The result captures the energy of the Rationales live performance and is the most dynamic recording the band has released to date.
Formed in 2007 by singer-songwriter David Mirabella, The Rationales have been evolving in both sound and lineup for the past 7 years. Their debut 2008 EP THE GOING AND THE GONE was called "one of the finer local CDs of the year" by the Boston Globe. Following a successful fan-funding kickstarter campaign in 2010, The Rationales released the LP THE DISTANCE IN BETWEEN in 2011 to high praise, both locally and internationally. The band kicked off 2012 with an appearance as semi-finalists in Boston's esteemed Rock-n-Roll Rumble. In 2013 the Rationales released the single "RADIO" and kicked off 2014 by releasing their new EP: DREAM OF FIRE.
Some recent praise for The Rationales and their CDs includes:
Finely wrought, lushly layered pop that sounds effortless in its executionâ€¦ a power pop flair fringed with alt-country detail."
-The Boston Globe
One of the best songwriting outfits in New England music today. This new effort, from start to finish is one that belongs in your record collection.
- Ryan's Smashing Life
These guys know their way around a power pop hook, serving 'em up by the barrel with choruses that stick in your head for days on end.
