Kurt Vile and the Violators

Dec. 19
7 p.m.
Alternative, Indie Rock, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Initially received as a lo-fi disciple of guys like Neil Young and Tom Petty, Kurt Vile's own stony charm and understated guitar heroics have made the Philly native one of the past decade's defining indie rockers. After a joint effort with Australia's Courtney Barnett last October, Lotta Sea Lice, Vile's latest solo album arrived almost exactly one year later. The new Bottle It In features the 10-minute psychedelic drift of "Bassackwards" and a cover of the '70s country hit "Rollin' with the Flow." With Jessica Pratt.
