Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in person, not even watching it on high-definition Blu-ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with this GrouponLive deal to see Augustana at Rams Head Live! For $10, you get one general-admission ticket for Wednesday, April 18, at 8 p.m. (a $20 value).
Augustana’s thunderstorm of yearning vocals, resonating piano, moody guitars, and restless percussion may appeal to fans of Coldplay and The Wallflowers, but its earnest lyricism and thickset soundscapes defy such easy, yet flattering, comparisons. Shortly after the band’s 2002 inception, it found itself on tour with the likes of Counting Crows and Maroon 5. Its major-label debut, All the Stars and Boulevards landed the hit “Boston” on countless television soundtracks and mixtapes for lovelorn Civil War reenactors. Today, the band builds on its musical legacy as it tours behind its latest album, simply titled Augustana. Performing the album's soaring kickoff single “Steal Your Heart,” the seasoned tunesmiths spelunk polyphonic caverns while singer Dan Layus knocks emotive shanties out of the park. Oregon’s Greylag opens the show with a mélange of harmonies and lullabies about homicide from its EP The Only Way to Kill You. With a rich history as a haunted early American brewery, Rams Head Live! now thrives as a 26,000-square-foot entertainment oasis sporting a bevy of viewing levels, video monitors, and five bars.
