Mayer Hawthorne, Cults at Skidmore

This year's "Big Fall Show" at Skidmore on October 12: Mayer Hawthorne, and Cults.

Mayer Hawthorne has sort of a modern soul thing going on -- he's been described as "Al Green with the tiniest onset of a head cold."

Cults is an indie pop band. You've probably heard their song "Go Outside." It's like sunshine encoded as music. (It's embedded above.) They're a 'fork fave.

The show is open to the public. General admission tickets are $25 ahead / $30 at door. The show starts at 9 pm on October 12 in the Williamson Sports Center.

By the way: the "Big Fall Show" at Skidmore has had pretty good string of acts over the last few years: Grizzly Bear, Janelle Monae, TV on the Radio.


shut up!!!! i fell in love with Mayer after seeing him on oh, i really want to go to this.
