Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band to play the Boulder Theater tonight

JRitterRR-16

Josh Ritter performs at Red Rocks, May 2016.

Tonight Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band will play the Boulder Theater.  Over the course of his acclaimed career, Ritter has released seven full-length albums, including his most recent, 2013’s The Beast In Its Tracks, which debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200 and #8 on the Top Rock Albums chart. The record also received widespread critical praise—NPR Music called it, “…gorgeous and glorious,” while Pitchfork asserted, “Beast is contemplative and forgiving, a means of burying one relationship to commit to another, and Ritter nicely evokes the excitement and resignation of such a transition.” Additionally, in 2011, Ritter made is debut as a published author with his New York Times best-selling novel, Bright’s Passage (Dial Press/Random House). Of the work, Stephen King writes in The New York Times Book Review, “Shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime…This is the work of a gifted novelist.”

From a recent press release: “RELEASED TO WIDESPREAD CRITICAL PRAISE, SERMON ON THE ROCKS WAS RECENTLY NAMED ONE OF POPMATTERS’ “80 BEST ALBUMS OF 2015” WITH NPR MUSIC INCLUDING HIS SONG ‘GETTING READY TO GET DOWN’ IN THEIR ‘FAVORITE SONGS OF 2015’ LIST”
