NORTH ADAMS, MASSACHUSETTS — Born out of indie pop and outsider music, Car Seat Headrest has evolved from the lo-fi homespun solo project of Will Toledo to a four-piece outfit generating intricate masterworks of pop music, drawing comparisons to everyone from the Beach Boys to Pavement. See The Internet’s finest IRL, when Car Seat Headrest combines forces with Naked Giants for a night of postmodern punk, enigmatic witticisms, and irresistibly head-banging tunes Friday, February 15, at 8pm.
“They are the kinds of perfect, instantly familiar pop songs that echo in the background of your dreams.” — The New Yorker
This electrifying live band has been the road for the past month playing grandiose, sold-out shows in support of the recently released Twin Fantasy, the re-recorded and re-imagined return to the group’s 2011 Bandcamp classic. Full of “gleaming, raging alt-rock grandeur” dubbed “a triumph” by Pitchfork, this remastered version, previously only available physically as a Record Store Day exclusive, will now be available on all digital services on November 2nd and on vinyl on November 9th. Car Seat Headrest kicks off a run of headline tour dates in February 2019, with a stop at MASS MoCA February 15.
Tickets for all events are available through the MASS MoCA box office located at the museum in North Adams. The box office is open 11am-5pm every day except Tuesdays. Tickets can also be charged by phone by calling 413.662.2111 x1 during box office hours or purchased online at massmoca.org. All events are held rain or shine.
