  • Date: April 4, 2014
  • Location: The Englert Theatre

Tracing their origins to an open mic night in Seattle, The Head and the Heart have come a long way since their first album dropped in 2011. One of Sub Pop Records most lucrative debut releases in years, the Head and the Heart have since then continued to play a prestigious list of venues across the United States and the rest of the world. The stomping, strumming, and melodious sing-a-longs from their pub days have led to a huge fan base garnering them the chance to play with other greats such as Dr. Dog, Iron and Wine, and Death Cab for Cutie. Gathering experiences from traveling the world and cultivating a listenership with huge respects for the band, The Head and the Heart dropped their second album in October this past year. Almost every song during their show is met with a clamor of excitement by the crowd, and is known to be a “transfixing performance,” as said by one review in the New York Times.

The show is all ages and will take place at The Englert Theatre on Friday, April 4, 2013. Doors open at 7 pm, and the show will begin at 8 pm. Tickets for this show go on sale Friday, January 31 at 12 pm and are avaible for UBill or purchase at The Hub (located at 138 Iowa Memorial Union) and all Ticketmaster outlets.
