Dawes to Play Sept. 25 at Pollak Theatre

August 9, 2013

WEST LONG BRANCH – The Jersey Shore will get its first look at the band called Dawes when the group opens the The Center for the Arts at Monmouth Univer­sity’s 2013-2014 Performing Arts Series.

The 8 p.m. show on Wed­nes­day, Sept. 25, marks the debut engagement at the West Long Branch campus for the L.A.-based group fronted by brothers Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith.

The performance is part of a busy interlude that has seen Dawes make a high-profile appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, and undertake a major theater and festival tour from Baltimore to Frisco, Ottawa to Austin, Little Rock to London – all in support of the band’s 2013 release Stories Don’t End.

It’s also another leg on a musical journey that has carried the Goldsmiths and bandmates Wylie Gelber and Tay Strathairn from the mellowed-out milieu of Laurel Canyon to the concrete canyons of Lower Manhattan, where in December  2011 they entertained the protestors of Occupy Wall Street.

Opening for Dawes will be Hayes Carll, a 2011 nominee for “Artist of the Year” by the Americana Music Associa­tion and acclaimed Scottish-American indie singer/songwriter Johnathan Rice, who also played Roy Orbison in the Academy Award-winning film, Walk the Line.

Tickets for the Sept. 25 concert are $25, $35 and $45 and can be reserved through the Monmouth University Performing Arts Box Office at 732-263-6889 or online at www.monmouth.edu/arts.

Tickets for other events at Monmouth University, including Rosanne Cash (Nov. 1), Ani DiFranco (Nov. 8), and Josh Ritter (Nov. 22) are on sale now.
