Big Thief on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

    Big Thief had a massive 2019, what with two stellar full-lengths — U.F.O.F. and Two Hands — the former of which earned them a Grammy nod. (It also made our list of Top Albums of the Year, by the by.) With newly announced tour dates on the docket (more on that in a second), the band is ready to carry that momentum into the new decade. On Tuesday night, they got things started with an appearance on Kimmel.

    The indie folk quartet showcased their second LP from last year by performing the Two Hands track “Shoulders”. As guitarist Buck Meek grooved off to one side and drummer James Krivchenia hunched over his kit, singer-guitarist Adrianne Lenker delivered a typically captivating performance. Her tense vibrato can span from anxiously delicate to ferociously trembling, and she stretched the entirety of that range during “Shoulders”. Watch the replay below.

    To coincide with last night’s TV spot, Big Thief have announced new tour dates for this summer. The North American leg takes place in July and August, including stops in Nashville, St. Paul, Toronto, Richmond, Cleveland, Denver, and Los Angeles. Additionally, the band will play a BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! concert with Sheer Mag and appear at the Newport Folk Festival in late July.
