We traveled a few hours west on the Mass Pike to capture Brooklyn-based Big Thief perform live at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke, Massachusetts.
Guitarist Buck Meek was not able to make the show so the band’s set took on a particularly intimate vibe interspersed with moments of full-volume energy. Shortly before taking the stage—Adrianne, Max and James were kind enough to talk with us about becoming a band, touring, and the importance of being present amongst the backdrop of late summer cicadas by the canals of downtown Holyoke.
Performance recorded on September 13, 2017.
