Aug. 26 - 7:30 PM / The GRAMMY Museum®

Ticket Prices

$30

With the recent release of their new album, Violet Street, the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Local Natives for an intimate conversation moderated by Scott Goldman, followed by a performance. Based in Los Angeles, Local Natives [Taylor Rice (vocals, guitar), Kelcey Ayer (vocals, keys), Ryan Hahn (vocals, guitar), Matt Frazier (drums), and Nik Ewing (vocals, bass, keys)] progressed their blissful sound over the course of three full-length albums: Gorilla Manor [2009], Hummingbird [2013], and Sunlit Youth [2016]. The latter received praise from The FADER, Consequence of Sound, and The Guardian. In between countless sold out shows and festival appearances - including a standout Coachella 2017 set - they’ve graced the stages of Austin City Limits, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,The Late Late Show With James Corden, and more. On their newly released fourth full-length album, Violet Street, the classic studio setting is juxtaposed with modern production and visuals to form a timeless album. The band’s signature soaring 3-part harmonies are augmented by loops of tape, physically spliced and transformed by hand. The result of experimenting in the studio with producer Shawn Everett [Alabama Shakes, Kacey Musgraves, The War On Drugs] is a band renewed.
