Jakob Dylan and The Wallflowers to Perform at Bearsville Theater, August 19th
WOODSTOCK – On Friday, August 19th, The Wallflowers will be performing at the hallowed and iconic Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, New York. An opening act, yet to be named, will start the night off. Presented by Radio Woodstock 100.1 WDST, in conjunction with Chet-5 Productions, doors to the event will open at 7:00 pm and the show will begin at 8:00 pm.
Returning to the Hudson Valley, Jakob Dylan and The Wallflowers will be appearing for an intimate performance this summer on the heels of the release of their first album in nearly a decade. For 30 years, The Wallflowers have stood as one of rock’s most dynamic and purposeful bands, a unit dedicated to honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. Rock ‘n’ roll is often hard to define, but you know it when you hear it. You always do with The Wallflowers.
Their Grammy award-winning signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996’s “Bringing Down the Horse” and more recent and exploratory fare like 2012’s “Glad All Over.” While it has been nine years since the group’s last album, the Wallflowers are silent no more. And Dylan always knew they’d return. “The Wallflowers is much of my life’s work,” he says simply. Plus, he adds with a laugh, “It’s pretty hard to get a good band name, so if you have one, keep it.”
That life’s work continues with Exit Wounds,The Wallflowers’ seventh studio album, released July 2021 on New West Records. The much-anticipated record finds the band’s signature sound – lean, potent, and eminently fascinating – intact, even as Dylan surrounds himself with a fresh cast of musicians. Which, the frontman is quick to point out, is not all that unusual. “The Wallflowers have always been a vehicle for me to make great rock ‘n’ roll records,” he says. “And sometimes the lineup that makes the record transfers over into touring, and sometimes it doesn’t. But my intention is always to make the Wallflowers record I want to make, using the musicians I have beside me.”
