Punch Brothers Will Help You Kick Off Your Weekend with Some Great Tunes

If you are seeking a Thursday night event unlike any other, get your tickets today to see Punch Brothers live in Austin! With enthusiasm and experimentation, Punch Brothers take bluegrass to its next evolutionary stage, drawing equal inspiration from the brain and the heart. The band will be performing at Bass Concert Hall in September.

Punch Brothers are the acoustic quintet of mandolinist Chris Thile, guitarist Chris Eldridge, bassist Paul Kowert, banjoist Noam Pikelny, and violinist Gabe Witcher. Punch Brothers have had six releases in their career, including four albums and two EPs. Their most recent releases were in 2015, when they released the album, The Phosphorescent Blues, and the EP, The Wireless. Rolling Stone praised the former, stating that “the genius of Thile and [his] bandmates … is the artistry with which they mix bluegrass, roots, rock, pop, jazz, and classical to create a unique, contemporary sound.”

On July 20, 2018, All Ashore was released as the band's fifth album. All Ashore, the first album to be self-produced by the quintet, is both ambitious and easygoing, a lot like the “ridiculously eclectic” combo, as London’s Guardian once called the band. The work has the feel of a nine-song suite, one that invites you to unravel the threads of its connected themes and stories over repeated listening. Each track segues seamlessly, even a little sneakily, into the next.

Punch Brothers is scheduled to perform a catalog of beloved and new songs alongside supporting act Madison Cunningham on Thursday, September 13th at Bass Concert Hall. Bass Concert Hall, a flagship theatre of Texas Performing Arts, is the largest theatre in Austin and has been open since 1981.
