Copley Square Park, Boston
Since forming in 2007, this seven-piece New Orleans roots-driven rock band has logged countless miles on the road, cultivating a high octane live show and a studio presence equally steeped in instrumental virtuosity and charismatic vocal magnetism Following two independent releases, 2010’s Vital Signs and 2014’s City of Sound, that time and dedication came to a head on the group’s third full-length album, Men Amongst Mountains [Wind-Up Records]. The Revivalists continue their rise with their hit single "Wish I Knew You,” which reached #1 at Alternative Radio in May with the support of Alt 92.9’s airplay, setting a new record for most single week spins ever at the format. The song is now a hit at Adult Alternative Radio, and breaking within the Hot AC format.
Alt Rocks Boston 2017 is presented by RCN. Opening acts for all three concerts will be announced in early August. For more information on Alt Rocks Boston 2017, visit http://alt929boston.com
