Eric Bachmann To Play Solo Show At Mercury Lounge

Eric Bachmann at The Great American Music Hall, from the HAD Archive

We'll make no secret of the fact that we here at HAD are fans of Eric Bachmann: Whether it be with his seminal days with Archers Of Loaf, his recent work with Crooked Fingers, or his gradually increasing solo output, the man always manages to create a sound that is completely his own. Given that, we were totally psyched to see that Bachmann will be making a solo appearance at Mercury Lounge on December 19th.

The show is part of a small, four date solo tour, and it's the only show not in Bachmann's native south. Given the intimate nature of the show, and the fact that Bachmann's last solo release (To The Races) was in 2006, there's no telling exactly what the setlist will consist of. That being said, we've never been to one of the man's shows and not enjoyed it, so we recommend you jump on board.

Tickets are on sale now.
