Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band will be performing at the Fonda Theatre on January 19 with openers Elephant Revival. Ritter is known for his distinctive Americana style and narrative lyrics and in 2006 he was named one of the “100 Greatest Living Songwriters” by Paste magazine. Over the course of his acclaimed career, Josh Ritter has released seven full-length albums.
Every ticket to this show sold comes with a download of Josh Ritter’s new album “Sermon on the Rocks.” The album was recorded in New Orleans, and it’s Josh’s most freewheeling and rollicking record to date.
“I wanted to play messianic oracular honky-tonk,” Josh says. “Mama says that I was born hungry, but I woke up one morning not long ago and found that I was ravenous.”
Anybody who is interested in folk, country or alternative should not miss out on the wonderful Josh Ritter. Be sure to catch him when he and the Royal City Band perform at the Fonda Theatre next year!
