Kurt Vile and Beach Fossils come to South Florida

Mariana Dias / Contributing Writer

It’s been a great year for Miami’s music scene in terms of debut performances, and this Friday’s concert is no exception. Presented by Sweat Records and Grand Central, Kurt Vile and The Violators are scheduled to change the vibes this November 1. Opening bands include VBA and locals The Band in Heaven.

           Kurt Vile’s Wakin’ On A Pretty Daze tour is an amendment to his west coast tour, which took place earlier this year. Miami is the 12th stop this fall, but the tour will cover the North American east coast, the UK and Western Europe until December. Touring with Kurt Vile and his band is Brooklyn indie-rock band Beach Fossils, who will open for him at Grand Central among other stops.

           Reigning from Philadelphia, Kurt Vile’s music portrays introspectiveness, solitude, curiosity and a hunger for understanding. His most recent album, “Wakin’ On A Pretty Daze,” emulates this perfectly and continues to receive positive feedback from listeners and the press. “Smoke Ring For My Halo” does not fall behind; it’s melodic portrayal of loneliness was embraced by the likes of Billboard Top 200.

           Beach Fossils, on the other hand, could also be considered another main act for those who are fans of melodic lo-fi Brooklyn guitar; they’ve proven to promise a nostalgic experience. However, it will be interesting to see how the two bands will maintain a characteristic feel (I’m planning on wearing a long skirt) to the concert considering their differing styles.

           The concert will be held Friday, November 1, at Grand Central in Miami. The doors open at 8 pm and tickets are $15. Expect to leave wanting to grow out your hair and hit the road… forever.

  1. I’m definitely going to the show just to see Beach Fossils. They’re such a great band and they never come down to south FL… been a fan since 2009.
