We’re not sure if Waxahatchee‘s Katie Crutchfield lives in Philadelphia anymore, and frankly, that’s irrelevant: the woman makes incredible music, regardless of whether her zip code designates her as “a local artist.” We do know that Crutchfield maintains Philly ties – her sludgey stoner rock band Great Thunder was one of the headliners at Golden Tea House’s OK Fest, a benefit for Decarcerate PA – and we do know that another Waxahatchee album is due sometime in the near future. And with today’s tour announcement, we’ll got our first taste to hear some of the new tunes.
The short run of dates will all feature Crutchfield playing acoustic, in settings that are friendly to quiet shows (ie. mostly not bars). The Philly date is is at the First Unitarian Church’s side chapel – a room with incredible acoustics and an unparalleled vibe – on the 9th of November. Crutchfield sounds pretty psyched about the tour in a statement emailed to press:
“I’m planning on playing songs from both my albums as well as songs from a new album i just finished recording. I’ll also be playing solo, which i’m really excited about. We chose most of the venues specifically because they’re more conducive to a more intimate type of performance. When i first started playing these songs i only toured solo and it’s always so gratifying for me to perform that way again.”
We know from her 2013 Key Studio Session that Waxahatchee is an ace solo act; check out her cover of the country favorite “Dark Moon” below, and get tickets via R5 Productions when they go on sale this Wednesday at noon.
