Big Thief at Albert Hall

Big Thief at Albert Hall, City Centre, 1 March 2020, from £20 - Book now

Fresh from last year’s richly acclaimed Two Hands, Big Thief are bringing their beguiling live show to Albert Hall this March.

Blending indie rock with wistful folk, the band shot out of the blocks with 2016’s Masterpiece. Loved for its memory capsule-like storytelling (delivered in a style singular to Adrianne Lenker), this record was followed by the intricately built Capacity (2017) and the fantastical U.F.O.F (2019).

Big Thief continued their winning streak with Two Hands (2019). Recorded in a cabin studio 30 miles west of El Paso, surrounded by 3,000 acres of pecan orchards and only a stone’s throw away from the Mexican border, the sound of this one grounds itself in dried-out, cracked desert dirt. Pitchfork, who voted it a solid 9.0, described it as “raw, tactile, and essential”.

We look forward to hearing these gorgeous songs live in the equally gorgeous Albert Hall.
