“My Morning Jacket…The new kings of expand-your-mind, religious-experience rock…” — The New York Times
From psychedelic to soul to classic rock and roll, My Morning Jacket’s range remains steadfast throughout the band’s sixteen years. The Louisville quintet released the first of 7 albums in 1999 with its last three, 2008’s Evil Urges, 2011’s Circuital, and 2015’s The Waterfall, each receiving Grammy nominations — the latter debuting at number 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The Waterfall, recorded at northern California’s Stinson Beach, is steeped in the spirit of where it was crafted. The band features Jim James (singer/songwriter, guitar), Tom Blankenship (bass), Patrick Hallahan (drums), Carl Broemel (guitar, pedal steel, saxophone, vox), and Bo Koster (keyboards, vox). Known as one of the most engaging, eclectic, and electric bands, in no small part due to Jim James’ otherworldly vocals, they’ve become legendary for their live performances.
All My Morning Jacket tickets holders receive $10 off gallery admission on Saturday (open 10am-7pm) or Sunday (open 10am-6pm).
