Sturgill Simpson and Johnny Stimson Set for Communion Club Nights, April 2014
Communion, the acclaimed live music promotions team and taste-making independent label, continues to garner critical praise for their monthly club night series. Communion's monthly club nights return in April with Sturgill Simpson and Johnny Stimson on all tour dates.
Presale tickets are available now at www.communionmusic.com. Student and affiliated radio patron discounts available. See below for tour details.Nashville native Sturgill Simpson's debut album was featured on many "Best of 2013" lists, including round-ups at Entertainment Weekly, Spin andThe Washington Post. His sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music is out May 13.
Communion recently joined in partnership with Global Citizen, an innovative online platform and mobile application run by The Global Poverty Project. To show its commitment to affecting change on a local, grassroots level, Communion will continue to provide ten percent of the tickets to each of its nine monthly club nights to Global Citizen to reward users.The Communion club night series brings artists to nine cities across the country, returning each month with a unique lineup showcasing emerging and established talent alongside local bands in each city. The U.S. nights are modeled on the legendary Communion night in Notting Hill, London founded in 2006 by Ben Lovett, Kevin Jones and Ian Grimble. Following the underground success achieved in London, the club night moved first to Brighton and then gradually to 15 cities in the U.K. and U.S. with a further outpost in Melbourne, Australia. Communion Records, CommunionPresents and, most recently, Communion Publishing emerged from bonds formed at these early club nights. Artists to emerge from the Communion fold include Michael Kiwanuka, Daughter, Gotye and Ben Howard.COMMUNION PRESENTS TOUR DATES:
