FRIDAY, JULY 8, 2016 – GRANT PARK
Petrillo Music Shell Lineup
5:30 pm concert start
Led by Montana native Colin Meloy, The Decemberists craft theatrical,
hyper- pop songs that draw heavily from late-'60s British folk acts like
Fairport Convention and Pentangle and the early-'80s college rock grandeur of
the Waterboys and R.E.M. After four years in the making, What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World
is the band's seventh studio album released in January 2015. Most notable on
the album is the song "12/17/12," named for and inspired by the date
that President Obama addressed the nation after the Newtown school shootings.
Shakey Graves is the stage name of Austin, Texas-based
singer-songwriter and musician Alejandro Rose-Garcia, who will open
for The Decemberists. He's best known for his one-man band set-up, as well as
his original and unpredictable approach that results in haunting melodies that
blend country, blues and rock. After hearing this charismatic artist live - Taste
goers will be hooked.
