This is an intimate house show by the wonderful Chris Staples and his band. Signed by Barsuk Records after being championed by Matthew Caws of Nada Surf, the former member of Telekinisis and Twothirtyeight, releases his new album "Golden Age" on August 19th 2016.
There are no casual Chris Staples fans. The man inspires devotion. The turnaround from casual listener to evangelist is nearly instantaneous. Play his music during a road trip with friends and inevitably someone will ask, "Who is this?" And a lifelong fan is born. Such is the unaffected power of these songs, of this voice. Chris Staples fandom is rewarding and lasting (despite his understated approach to promoting his own work, which — as it should be with all artists — seems secondary to the effort he puts into the making of it). We follow where he leads, and our numbers are growing.
The address of the show will be emailed to you on the day of the gig, but it is in Eccles, if you need to plan to travel. Parking is limited but it's a five minute walk from Eccles railway station, seven minutes from the tram stop and on a bus route.
Doors at 7:30pm
Chris Staples 8:30pm - 10:00pm
The host is allowing attendees to bring a few beers or a bottle of wine to enjoy at the show. But please remember that this is a low-key intimate performance, not a party!
