UPDATE: This show is sold out. See you Thursday April 2!
WTMD is excited to welcome Lower Dens, one of Baltimore’s most enigmatic bands, for a live broadcast with a seated studio audience on Thursday April 2.
Lower Dens is adored by critics but still a well-kept secret among indie music fans. However, that may change in the coming weeks. Both of their new singles, “To Die in L.A.” and “Ondine,” were named Best New Track by Pitchfork (they called “To Die in LA” “the crack in a broken heart”). The band’s singer and songwriter, Jana Hunter, was recently featured in Vogue, and Rolling Stone gave their new album, “Escape From Evil,” 3.5 stars.
Doors open at 7 p.m., and Lower Dens goes live at 8 p.m. in WTMD’s performance studio at 1 Olympic Place in Towson.
The show is two days after the release of Lower Dens’ third album, “Escape From Evil.” It’s their most danceable album yet, with a guitar-driven ‘80s feel and an undercurrent of dark nostalgia.
Lower Dens doesn’t perform in Baltimore very often, and won’t be playing small rooms for long.
