The Backseat Lovers
Before heading to Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival this summer, and then Mexico to open for the Arctic Monkeys in the fall, Utah-based alt-rock outfit The Backseat Lovers is on the road promoting its major label debut album, Waiting To Spill, which is filled with heavy epics, hopeless lyrics that front acoustic bluesy instrumentals, and “Snowbank Blues,” which features a production style that sounds like a For Emma, Forever Ago-era Bon Iver.

Chicago-based indie folk project Free Range opens this mid-week treat.

Tickets to see The Backseat Lovers play Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, May 23 are sold-out. Subscribe to Creative Loafing newsletters.
