JME Presents | Kurt Vile and The Violators


Indie singer-songwriter and purveyor of certifried guitar pop tunes Kurt Vile plays the Bier Hall inside Intuition Ale Works on Thursday, May 9.

Vile’s latest, the extensive extended player Back to Moon Beach has earned critical adoration and broad airplay, floating around the top of the college charts since its release in late 2023. Back to Moon Beach is just the latest offering from Vile, whose singular guitar playing, arch and jesting wordplay and laid-back vocal delivery has made him one of the most popular independent musicians of the 21st century. The one-time guitarist for the War On Drugs (that band’s singer-guitarist, Adam Granduciel, also played in Vile’s backing band, the Violators for a spell) emerged from the early-aughts Philadelphia music scene as a self-proclaimed Constant Hitmaker – a moniker he’s lived up to across nearly a dozen albums, from his aforementioned solo debut to 2013’s Wakin on a Pretty Daze to 2022’s watch my moves, and collaborations with a litany of other artists including Courtney Barnett.
