The Districts: Preview

The gig calendar has a tendency to slow down over these summer months. One band certain to speed things up are The Districts who are bringing their colourful rock to The Doug Fir soon.

Their last full-length record sparked a real sense of imagination. You don’t always have to be different in order to deliver something special. The band proved this effortlessly with their debut album, there’s no smoke and mirrors, just a bunch of brutally honest songs from Pennsylvania. 

The four high-school pals first demanded the attention of the music industry with an unhinging live show at SXSW festival, yet they’ve barely seemed half-arsed about any of the attention that’s followed. Instead choosing to happily retain the bleary-eyed teen traits that are ever-present amongst stateside slacker bands.

We’re also excited for support act The Spirit Of the Beehive who channel Sun Kil Moon in their reclined and quirky approach. This show is definitely one to get along to.

The Districts play The Doug Fir on July 6th. Tickets are available here
