Register to Win Tickets to Punch Brothers
91.3 WYEP is giving away tickets to Punch Brother with special guest Gabriel Kahane- Mr. Smalls on September 22nd!
Punch Brothers’ latest album, the T Bone Burnett–produced The Phosphorescent Blues, addresses with straight-up poignancy and subversive humor the power and the pitfalls of our super-connected era. Digitally fueled isolation may be a theme, but this virtuosic acoustic quintet offers its warmest, most emotive and elegantly melodic work to date. A longing for community and connection was both impetus and inspiration for this disc. Punch Brothers had been touring almost non-stop since uniting to support mandolin player Chris Thile’s 2006 solo album, How to Grow a Woman From the Ground. After scaling back in February 2013, the band began writing sessions where, Thile relates, they had animated debates about how they relate to music, and to each other, through a digital filter.
