brandi-carlile-2012

Brandi Carlile will be rolling her tour bus through Los Angeles on Friday, November 9th, and we’re giving away TWO pairs of tickets to her show at the Orpheum Theater! She is currently making her way across the continent for the West Coast leg of her tour in support of her summer release, Bear Creek, and the Brandi Carlile concert experience is unparalleled. Never have I witnessed an artist execute a live performance with so much vocal passion. You can hear a collective sigh throughout the audience as Carlile delivers a heartbreaking ballad, watch as everyone jumps to their feet and begins clapping out a beat when she sings one of her rockers, or laugh as Carlile clowns with the twins (her loyal backing musicians, Tim and Phil Hanseroth).

I first saw Carlile live in a free outdoor concert she performed in Copley Square, Boston, while promoting The Story. I remember turning to my best friend in wonderment to remark, “If it’s even possible, she’s somehow better live than on the records.” It was after a few more years of obsession that I saw Carlile for the second time in Nashville on her Give Up The Ghost tour. Braced on the edge of my seat for the whole two hours, I came to truly appreciate the awe Carlile inspires not by using fancy sets, costume changes, or production spectacular, but with the control of her voice and the humble power of her lyrics. This current tour is something no Brandi Carlile fan (or connoisseur of great music in general) will want to miss.
