Archers of Loaf and Crooked Fingers singer Eric Bachmann comes to town through Undertow Music Collective, a company that links artists and their fans to create unique, intimate concert experiences. You won’t know the address of the concert until you purchase a ticket—and that’s half the fun!
Bachmann kicked off his music career in the ‘90s with beloved indie/noise-pop band Archers of Loaf. After Archers dissolved in 1998, he spearheaded Crooked Fingers, a folk-tinged indie/Americana project that highlighted Bachmann’s warm vocals and lyrical stylings.
It wasn’t until 2002 that Bachmann released a solo album under his own name. Short Careers, an entirely instrumental record, also served as his first attempt at film scoring and was the soundtrack to the film Ball of Wax. A followup came in 2006, to The Traces.
While maintaining Crooked Fingers and working on solo material, Bachmann also played in Neko Case’s touring band, releasing a third solo album on Merge Records in early 2016. At that time, he announced that Crooked Fingers was finished and he would be operating under his own name from then on.
His Undertow tour offers Archers, Crooked Fingers, and Bachmann fans the chance to hear the songwriter in a cozy, personable environment.
You must buy a ticket in advance to attend the show. No audio or video recording is allowed, but flash photography is okay as long as it’s non-intrusive.
