April 19 | Massey Hall | Tickets
Big Thief are bringing their new double album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You to Massey Hall this April. The sprawling new album boasts a whopping 20 tracks, and their sure to play plenty of them at their show this week. “One of the things that bonds us together as a band is pure magic,” Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker explains. “I think we all have the same guide and none of us have ever spoken what it is because we couldn’t name it, but somehow, we are all going for the same thing, and when we hit it… we all know it’s it, but none of us to this day, or maybe ever, will be able to articulate in words what the ‘it’ is. Something about it is magic to me.”
