Levi’s Brings Indie Rock to Braddock, PA

  • By Anthony | Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Benefit Braddock was just announced and we couldn’t be more excited!

The Levi’s Benefit Braddock concert series, which features performances from a virtual dean’s list of the 2011 indie rock scene, lasts three days in nearby Braddock, PA. The event is more than just a series of shows, however… Proceeds from ticket sales will support the rebuilding efforts in Braddock, tripled by a contribution from Levi’s!

The series kicks off with a Thursday night double-header from indie troubadour Andrew Bird and opener Kurt Vile, whose hazy 2011 Matador release Smoke Ring for My Halo has already topped several album-of-the-year lists.

Friday’s set features Atlas Sound, the subdued dream-pop side project from Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox. The band will open for long-time partisans of the psychedelic indie rock sound, Built to Spill.

Finally on Saturday, the series will really start to take off with back-to-back, riotous sets from Titus Andronicus and The Hold Steady.

Tickets are on sale now at ShowClix.com, but get them quickly because they won’t last long!
