Sam Smith at The Tabernacle
Sam Smith is a British singer-songwriter who rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure’s breakthrough single “Latch.” His subsequent feature—on Naughty Boy’s “La La La”—earned him his first number 1 single in May 2013. In December 2013, he was nominated for and won both the 2014 BRIT Critics’ Choice Award and the BBC’sSound of 2014 poll. He released his debut studio album, In the Lonely Hour, in May 2014 on Capitol Records. The album’s third single “Stay with Me” was an international success, peaking atop both the UK Singles chart and the U.S. Billboard Pop Songs chart and also reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Doors open at 6:30pm, the show starts at 7:30pm. This event is sold out.
Polica at Terminal West
POLIÇA began as a collaboration between fellow Gayngs’ members Channy Casselle and Ryan Olson in June of 2011. By July they had completed 11 songs, made the key additions of drummers Ben Ivascu and Drew Christopherson, bass player Chris Bierdan, and headed into the studio. After Mike Noyce (Bon Iver) lent his voice on Lay Your Cards Out and Wandering Star, the record was brought to Austin, TX to be mixed with Jim Eno (Spoon). In a few days, the LP was completed and the band Poliça was formed. On stage, the original beats composed by Olson play amongst Channy’s passionate vocals & an intense rhythm section, that lead to a description somewhere in the area of electro-r&b goth-pop.
Tickets are $17.00. Doors open at 8pm. Concert starts at 9pm.
