Hearts on Fire Tour at the Visualizing Fugazi Exhibit
Having a DIY show at a DIY art space that is currently celebrating the history of the best DIY act in punk rock history only seems fitting.
Come enjoy an evening of music and drinks with the "Hearts On Fire Tour" as you revel in the visual history of Fugazi.
The Hearts on Fire Tour is bringing together two generations of punk rock veterans.
Over 25 years and 3500-ish shows fronting Far, onelinedrawing, New End Original, and Gratitude, Jonah has played as many homes as he has huge festivals, and he brings the same thing no matter what a devoted fan base, a deep catalog, raw honesty, and an interest in making every show unique and personal. In just the last few years, he's written a book about raising his daughter while making music for a living (Alone Rewinding), made a record with J Robbins and Zach Barocas of Jawbox (Camorra), made a record with Ian Love of Rival Schools (I Is Another), and released a solo album (Me And You Are Two) all while playing hundreds of shows, sending out thousands of orders, and keeping up with countless inboxes.
After 20 years of fronting the posthardcore legends BOYSETSFIRE Gray finally found the courage to release "Feral Hymns" in January of 2018: The album combines dark, stripped down acoustic guitars with tastefully added cello and piano layers. This forms the perfect background for Grays signature voice and his most personal lyrics so far. On some of the songs he even trades in the acoustic for an electric guitar and pays homage to one of his big influences - political singer/songwriter BILLY BRAGG.Songs like "As The Waves Crash Down" and "Blue Hearts And Shades Of Grey" are as powerful and heartfelt as the anthems fans love BOYSETSFIRE for so much. "Feral Hymns" was produced by BOUNCING SOULS guitarist Pete Steinkopf at Little Eden Studios where he also added several backing vocals and additional guitars. For his first full length album Gray wrote 8 new songs and re-arranged three THE CASTING OUT songs and one BOYSETSFIRE classic. This spring he will be releasing a split EP with Wish You Were Here on End Hit Records. This tour will coincide with the release of the EP.
