MASS MoCA Postpones One Concert; Announces Two New Ones


With an ear for music that’s as adventurous (and sometimes controversial) as the contemporary artworks that hang on the walls of the sprawling museum, MASS MoCA continues to welcome innovative, imaginative musicians to its stages. Now the folks at the North Adams museum have added a pair of new concerts to its fall slate of performances and sadly postponed another one.

The concert by The Decemberists, which was scheduled to take place on Friday evening (June 15), has been postponed due to Colin Meloy’s continued vocal strain. Fortunately, the band has already re-scheduled their MASS MoCA concert for Thursday, October 4. (Sadly, Mountain Jam festival-goers are not so lucky. The Decemberists have also cancelled their scheduled 6:15pm Saturday [June 16] performance at Hunter Mountain. There will be no make-up date for that show.)

All tickets sold for Friday’s concert will be honored for the rescheduled date. For ticket holders that cannot attend, please contact our Box Office before Friday, June 22.

Here are the details for the two newly announced concerts:

These days, he calls himself Bonnie Prince Billy. You might recognize him as Palace Brothers or Will Oldham or for the song of his that Johnny Cash covered. An enigma of the folk-rock world — The New Yorker calls him “one of the country’s most celebrated singer-songwriters” despite the fact that he’s never signed with a label — Bonnie Prince Billy is hard to find, easy to love and impossible to dismiss (even if it’s been years since anyone’s had the chance to see him). Call him a DIY folkster with vintage vibes, country cred and a voice as rich as death. Singing about bottomless heartache and cowboy philosophy, he’s here at MASS MoCA for an intimate and uncensored show this fall. The Louisville folk duo The Other Years warms up the house.

With U.S. Girls
Tuesday, October 30, 8pm
MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center, North Adams
$25 in advance; $35 at the door; $45 preferred
Tickets on sale at 10am Friday (June 15)
Tune-Yards’ highly acclaimed new 4AD album, I can feel you creep onto my private life, was released earlier this year. Entertainment Weekly called the album “politically urgent,” The New York Times praised it as “a sleek, radical evolution” and NPR Music said it’s “Tune-Yards’ most sophisticated album to date.” Opening the show will be the eight-piece U.S. Girls – led by Meg Remy – in support of their recently released album, In a Poem Unlimited.
