Event details

Mistletone proudly presents singer and songwriter supreme, Kurt Vile, bringing his Violators to The Gov this Saturday night with special guests, RVG. Final tickets selling fast! doors open 7:30pm RVG 8:30pm KV 9:30pm One of the most critically and commercially acclaimed artists of the last decade, Kurt Vile will release Bottle It In on Friday 12 October via Matador Records / Remote Control. A sprawling new jammer titled ‘Bassackwards’ follows previously released Bottle It In single, ‘Loading Zones’, an ode to the parking challenges in Vile’s native Philadelphia, described alternately as “Vile at his comforting, shaggy best” (The Guardian), and an “ambiguous rumination on small town life” (MOJO). The epic, loping ‘Bassackwards’ is the album’s beating heart and Vile’s most compelling evocation of how he sees the world: “I was on the ground circa Planet Earth, but out of sorts,” he sings over a gently psychedelic bed of backmasked guitars. “But I snapped back, baby, just in time to jot it down.”
