THE UNDERGROUND THIEVES ANNOUNCE OPENING SLOT FOR THE STRUTS
The Philly-based sextet will open two shows at the Fillmore in Philadelphia
The Underground Thieves, a Philadelphia-based band led by artist/songwriter/producer Nick Perri, announced today the band will open two nights for The Struts at The Fillmore on December 28 and December 29.
“We couldn’t be more excited,” said Perri, who has high expectations for the engagements. “Not only are we big fans of The Struts, but it’s our first hometown show in over a year. So yeah, it’s going to be insane.”
The band has spent the better part of 2019 writing songs, cutting demos, and preparing material for their first full-length LP. “I’m very excited about the new material,” said Perri. “It’s a continuation and natural progression from where we left off with ‘Whole Lotta Money’ and ‘White Noise’; it’s powerful.”
Produced by Perri, the band’s last single “Whole Lotta Money” was named ‘song of the week’ in the UK by loudersound.com, and earned acclaim from the band’s music industry contemporaries, including Greta Van Fleet’s Danny Wagner, Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr, and Gibson’s Director of Brand Experience, Mark Agnesi.
“I haven’t heard a song that has made me LITERALLY want to get up and get a guitar and start playing immediately since I was a little kid.” – Danny Wagner
“This song is infectious. You can’t not boogie when you hear it. And, not only does it contain Nick Perri’s fantastic guitar playing, but he has stepped up to the vocal mic and is singing his ass off[.]” – Charlie Starr
“The guitar playing, the tones, that drum groove, the hook…everything about it is infectious.” – Mark Agnesi
Tickets are on sale now for both Fillmore shows, and more information can be found at livenation.com
