Murder By Death and J Roddy Walston & The Business, two leading purveyors of the vivacious indie folk rock scene, co-headline the Backyard Stage at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Wednesday, February 20, 2019.
As trailblazers of the early 2000s Indie-Americana style, Murder By Death finds a way of taking tried and true rock n’ roll and knocking it slightly off axis, into tottering revolutions of something eerie, emotional, immediate, lush, and uniquely theirs. Their eighth full-length album, “The Other Shore”, is a space-western about a ravaged Earth, its’ fleeing populace, and a relationship in jeopardy. It’s an epic journey rocketing toward the unknown in the universe, within the characters represented through 11 songs, and through the band’s evolving sound.
Road warriors from the time they formed in 2002, J Roddy Walston & The Business has long been an underground favorite, toiling away in clubs and bars and carving out its own niche outside of the rock mainstream. But the radio success of their breakout hit album “Essential Tremors” opened new doors and fostered exciting opportunities, including invites to Lollapalooza, the Newport Folk Festival, and Bonnaroo, and a featured slot in an episode of the prestigious music TV institution, Austin City Limits.
