Two weeks ago The Weather Station (Tamara Lindeman) was named as support for a week’s worth of Mitski’s upcoming tour, including her long-sold-out rescheduled date at Franklin Music Hall on Sunday, July 24th. However, the folk singer/songwriter will be playing her biggest headlining show in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection this upcoming Sunday, April 24th, at The Music Hall at World Café Live (originally scheduled for this January).
Last month The Weather Station released her latest LP, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, on Fat Possum. With the songs written at the same time as her JUNO-nominated 2021 fifth LP, Ignorance, the two albums are meant as companion pieces. Uncut gave How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars a perfect, 10/10, score, calling it, “a record that makes you hold your breath. A record you want to draw close. It is quite simply stunning.”
Although we’ve gotten to know Tamara Lindeman quite well over the years, it’s normally from the intimacy of our favorite Fishtown dive, Johnny Brenda’s, which will likely be quite different from her April 24th show at the city’s biggest listening room, which is apparently selling quite well. Get your tickets while you can, check out The Weather Station’s recent music video for “To Talk About It,” off of How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, and read my April 2018 chat with Lindeman about her self-titled fourth album, life on the road, and Philadelphia.
