Heathens to hit local stage Monday

-A +A
A band on a national tour is making a stop in Folsom on Monday. According to a news release, The Band of Heathens had 200-plus show dates in 2010, a fifth-anniversary celebration, appearances at Lollapalooza and other top national festivals and a taping of Austin City Limits with Elvis Costello. They also wrote and recorded a new studio album. The band will perform at 9 p.m., Monday, April 11, at Powerhouse Pub, 614 Sutter St., in Folsom. Tickets are $10. The result is Top Hat Crown & the Clapmaster’s Son, a multi-faceted disc. Their third studio album and the fifth release overall, Top Hat Crown displays the wide range of classic influences fans and critics have come to admire in the band, yet they’ve added, built and grown. The Band of Heathens was honored as Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards and nominated as Best Duo or Group by the Americana Music Awards. The Wall Street Journal’s Jim Fusilli called theirs the best set he saw during South by Southwest 2009.
