Recent GRAMMY-award winners Old Crow Medicine Show (OCMS) are excited to announce a special Los Angeles show Wednesday May 1 at the El Rey Theatre. The band haven’t performed in Los Angeles since 2009, and this will be the first Los Angeles show since the release of their fourth full-length album, Carry Me Back, released in July of 2012. Tickets for the show go on sale this Saturday April 27 at 10:00 am PST. Purchase tickets at Ticketmaster or at Origami Vinyl in Los Angeles.
OCMS (Ketch Secor, Critter Fuqua, Kevin Hayes, Morgan Jahnig, Gill Landry, and Chance McCoy) have made a name for themselves as energetic performers with an unbridled spirit. Cory Younts will be performing with Old Crow at this LA show after spending a year in Jack White’s touring band. Singer-songwriter Robert Ellis will provide support, taking the stage at 8:00 pm before Old Crow takes the stage at 9:00 pm. Doors are at 7:00 pm.
The show at the El Rey will follow the band’s performance of their song “Mississippi Saturday Night” on TBS’ Conan on Monday night April 29. Tune in at 11 pm/10 pm central Monday night to check it out.
The band will also be headlining at the Mustang Stage this Friday, April 26 at the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA.
OCMS have spent the majority of the last year touring in support of their fourth full-length studio album, Carry Me Back. The album achieved the highest chart position in the band’s career. Carry Me Back was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly). The LA Times hailed the album as “the band’s finest songs in some time,” and American Songwriter said the album is “simple and great, and simply great.”
