Singular Artists proudly presents Calexico live at The Helix, Dublin,Sunday 5th November 2023, performing 20th anniversary of ‘Feast of Wire’.
In early 2003, Calexico released their seminal album ‘Feast of Wire’, the album that truly marked the duo’s critical and commercial breakthrough. They will perform in full as well as a slew of beloved songs from the band’s full repertoire.
Calexico has spent the better part of the past three decades exploring the dusty musical borderlands of the American Southwest, crafting singular, cinematic songs as mysterious and magnificent as the arid desert landscapes that inspired them.
Founded in Tucson, AZ, by guitarist/singer Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino, the band first emerged to widespread acclaim in the mid-1990s with a string of arresting, evocative records that blurred the lines between their roots, rock, and Latin influences, but it was 2003’s 'Feast of Wire' that truly marked the duo’s commercial and critical breakthrough, earning them their first appearances on the Billboard charts and rave reviews everywhere from The Guardian to Pitchfork, who called the record “genuinely masterful.”
In the years to come, Calexico would go on to release eight more similarly well-received studio albums (including 'Years To Burn', their GRAMMY-nominated 2019 collaboration with frequent tourmate Iron & Wine), work with everyone from Willie Nelson and Jim James to Nancy Sinatra and Neko Case, produce and perform on Amos Lee’s #1 album 'Mission Bell’, score multiple feature films and many more.
Calexico’s 2022 album, ‘El Mirador', stands both as a lookout point and beacon in the dark; an opportunity to search inwards, ponder our connections to the Earth and its people, and hopefully illuminate a path forward. After decades on the road Calexico's music remains boundless and romantic, still gazing upon the horizon in search of their next adventure.
