We at Cause A Scene are beyond pumped to present Katie Herzig as she celebrates the official release of her brand new record Walk Through Walls only two weeks from today, on April 25th at Mercy Lounge. Walk Through Walls, released earlier this week, is the highly anticipated follow-up to Herzig’s 2011 album, The Waking Sleep. While Herzig has been writing and recording music for over a decade, the critical and commercial success of The Waking Sleep kept her busy over the last three years. Along with a continually and rapidly growing international fan base and multiple tours, the bar was set very high when she began recording the material that would be stitched together to produce Walk Through Walls, but the result is nothing short of impressive and utterly satisfying. With a dream-like quality that pulses through all 12 tracks like a racing heart pumping blood to various extremities, ‘Walls’ retains the indie pop spirit and catchy melodies that has become signature of Herzig. If that isn’t enough, she has also toured with the likes of Ingrid Michaelson, Brandi Carlile, The Fray and Sarah Bareilles, and has multiple festivals through the years, yielding one badass resume.
Also playing on April 25th will be Amy Stroup, whom we also had the immense honor of presenting the release show for her new album, Tunnels, at Mercy Lounge less than two months ago. A strong reaction from Tunnels and the recognition of being named a Garrison Keilor’s Prairie Home Companion “Top 20 Songwriter Under 30” solidify Stroup as the perfect compliment to Herzig, culminating in a rare duo of powerhouse indie pop songstresses that are sure knock the doors off the Mercy.
Britpop-rock duo Lovers Electric will be opening up the show. Comprised of Eden Boucher and David Turley, this London based band has garnered critical acclaim both across the pond as well as in the States with their debut EP, Waiting For Something to Happen, which released last year. Lovers Electric is currently putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming full-length album.
Go ahead mark your calendars for April 25th, and don’t miss out on a night that is sure to be nothing short of epic, with a lineup stacked with some of music’s most promising talent. Get your tickets early here, because this one will be packed out! GA tickets are $15; seats are $20. Show starts at 8:00 PM. Doors at 7:00 PM.
