City and Colour, Lucy RosePop/Rock
This afternoon I read that Chris Carrabba’s new band Twin Forks would be supporting City and Colour on select Australian tour dates in November and December. The gods of Alternative Press and Hot Topic couldn’t write a better script if they tried. Carrabba, who made a fortune with Dashboard Confessional in the Aughts, was the first person who came to mind when I considered City and Colour frontman Dallas Green’s transition from guitar-slinging post-hardcore dude in Alexisonfire to the highly successful, vulnerable singer-songwriter he is today. Both rocketed from the teen angst underground (not unlike semi-locals Paramore) to achieve widespread acclaim among older, more fluid audiences, and to see the day when their records would go gold and platinum. Green, who recorded City and Colour’s soft, twangy new album The Hurry and The Harm at Nashville’s Blackbird Studio, continues his meteoric rise with a headlining spot at the Ryman. Lucy Rose opens.
