Get ready for a great night of American music when we welcome Assembly of Dust to Center Stage at Town Center Park on Thursday, July 13 for a free show! Tonight’s concert is sponsored by the Spanish Peaks Community Foundation. The band will play in Big Sky on the way to the acclaimed Targhee Festival at the Grand Targhee ski resort, so we’re happy to have them on stage!
Drawing on that influence and countless others, over the last ten years Assembly of Dust has crafted a unique sound that recalls the likes of The Band, Traffic and Neil Young. They have taken that early 70’s Americana swagger, put their own funky spin on it, and earned comparisons to the next generation of Americana heroes including Ryan Adams, Mumford and Sons and Wilco. Hooky melodies, poetic lyrics, and a profound depth of musicianship prompted USA Today to say Assembly of Dust has what it takes to “dazzle the Alt-Country universe.”
“As a child I can remember locking myself in my room with a big old set of headphones and listening to The Band’s Music From Big Pink album over and over again,” said Reid Genauer, the lead singer and founder of the New York based quintet. “Besides loving the hell out of the music, I was intrigued with the production value in the recordings. As I listened I felt almost like I was there in the room with The Band at a moment of perfection. That intimate listening experience drew me in and is what inspired me to be a musician.”
Park opens at 6 p.m. Please NO DOGS or glass containers in the park!
