REVIEW: THE BALLROOM THIEVES at THE BASEMENT

The Music City was fortunate enough to witness yet another powerful  performance from blog favorite alt-folk outfit The Ballroom Thieves recently; they set up camp at The Basement for a pre-celebration of their release of their new album, Deadeye–the cozy atmosphere of the iconic venue ensured an intimate and friendly experience.

The songs on Deadeye were, admittedly, a product of friction, stress, and tension created by the struggles of  being in a band, but The Thieves are stronger than ever. The band opened the evening with much charisma, a signature of the Boston-based three-piece, who interact like a tight-knit family, drawing the audience in with their upbeat chatter and heartfelt melodies. Each member was successfully featured in a beautiful rotation that emphasized their folk-rock sound and their multi-instrumentalist talents.

The Ballroom Thieves are currently on a nationwide tour, so be sure to catch them live when they come to your neck of the woods.
