ABOUT THE NATIONAL PARKS: The National Parks was formed by Brady Parks in 2013 in Provo, Utah and has since independently released three studio albums. Upon the release of their debut LP, Young (2013), the band climbed to #13 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and with their sophomore record, Until I Live (2015), the 4-piece became a Billboard Regional Heatseeker. The National Parks' third studio album, Places, was released in late 2017 followed by a deluxe version in February 2018.
In the first month after the release of Places(2017), the record had been streamed more than 1,000,000 times on Spotify alone with individual tracks landing on major Spotify playlists like Pop Chillout, Indie Pop and Morning Commute.Despite operating as a true independent, the band has built and maintained an impressive following with a Spotify monthly listenership nearing 400,000 and appearances at SXSW, CMJ, Snowmass Mammoth Fest, Oyster Ridge Music Festival, School Nights at Bardot's. Praise has come from major press outlets such as NPR, Paste, Baeble Music, The Vinyl District.
The National Parks create atmospheric and anthemic indie-folk as boundless as their name would suggest (Paste Magazine) centered around male/female harmonies backdropped by guitar/piano/violin instrumentation. The band's earliest touring was done as a three-piece but as the music has evolved, so has the band. A wide cast of musicians have joined as touring members of The National Parks but by 2015, the group had settled into a consistent four-piece setup with original members Brady Parks (vocals/guitar) and Sydney Macfarlane (vocals/keys) playing alongside, Cam Brannelly (drums) and Megan Parks (violin).
ABOUT WILD: WILD is a Los Angeles based trio comprised of Lauren Luiz (vocals), Tyler Thompson (producer/guitar) and Zach Daegatano (guitar/vocals). Hailing from Portland, Minneapolis, and Boston, respectively, their paths did not intertwine until Tyler and Zach met through a mutual friend and began writing songs together. The only thing missing was the right singer who could complement their soulful melodies with pop sensibilities. It was not until Tyler and Zach met Lauren in 2016 that they felt complete. Lauren's powerful vocals and strong topline was the perfect fit.
ABOUT LISTENING PARTY: Listening Party, a 2018 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) nominee for Bluegrass/Americana, have found a place in the original music scene around the Midwest with their soulful stage presence and infectious melodies. The trio out of Milwaukee, WI present a fresh brand of Americana music that feeds from folk, classic rock, soul and bluegrass. Singer-songwriter Weston Mueller, a Northern Wisconsin native, leads the group with "every note full of expression and feeling" (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). Complemented by multi-instrumentalists, Joshua Hester and Jacob Wood, each song paints a portrait of the groups varying musical backgrounds.
This is a club-style show with limited seating available on a first-come, first-served basis.
