Ray Lamontage at MASS MoCA
Higher Ground Presents: Ray LaMontagne and Neko Case at MASS MoCA.
Ten years ago Ray LaMontagne released his first album, Trouble, the gold-certified start to a fiercely ambitious, Grammy Award-winning, critically praised career that’s encompassed five more albums, several EPs, a slew of soundtrack compilations and arresting live performances fronting a variety of ensembles.
Neko Case is the consummate career artist fearless and versatile, with a fierce work ethic and a constant drive to search deeper within herself for creative growth. Rolling Stone calls her “one of America’s best and most ambitious songwriters,” while Pitchfork deemed 2013’s ‘The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You’“the most potent album of her career” (Pitchfork). 2015’s ’Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule’box set looked back on her groundbreaking 20 years in music, packaging together 8 classic albums that track her unique journey from punk/country torchbearer to “essentially peerless” (NPR) avant pop icon.
Get here early to check out the galleries of MASS MoCA, which New York Times says “…Is a weird and wonderful place. Its mission seems to be to appeal to everyone, both the entry-level art lover and the sophisticated one.” All ticket holders get a %50 discount on museum admission day of, day before, or day after the show.
This concert is a rain or shine event.
