The NCMA and Cat’s Cradle present: Lake Street Dive with The Dip

Sold Out

About Lake Street Dive
Since forming in 2004, Lake Street Dive have matched sophisticated musicianship with a fearless refusal to limit their sound. As shown on their most recent album, 2021’s critically acclaimed Obviously, the Boston-bred band possesses a keen talent for combining sociopolitical commentary with immediately catchy pop gems. With their current lineup, comprised of founding members Rachael Price (vocals), Bridget Kearney (bass), and Michael Calabrese (drums)–as well as keyboardist/vocalist Akie Bermiss and touring guitarist James Cornelison–Lake Street Dive continue to create joyously soulful rock and roll with equal parts ingenuity, intelligence, and irresistible abandon.

They’ve captivated audiences at Newport Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and Toronto Jazz Festival, in addition to headlining tours all across the globe and sharing stages with acts such as Brandi Carlile and Sheryl Crow. Through their fierce commitment to constantly elevating their artistry, Lake Street Dive have ultimately emerged as one of the most compelling bands in alternative music today, both reliably sublime and thrilling unpredictable.

Lake Street Dive have partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket goes to supporting the Climate Justice Alliance and their work uniting frontline communities and organizations into a formidable force in the climate movement.

About The Dip

Hailing from Seattle, The Dip is an electrifying seven-piece ensemble that melds vintage rhythm and blues with classic pop storytelling. Acclaimed by KEXP as “one of the most exciting and joyous acts to emerge in recent years,” the band features frontman Tom Eddy’s compelling vocals over an effortlessly deep pocket and energetic melodies from the three-piece Honeynut Horns.Following the organic buzz of the 2015 debut, the band arrived on the international stage with their 2019 sophomore full-length, The Dip Delivers. Buoyed by the hit single “Sure Don’t Miss You,” the album was entirely recorded and mixed by the band in their own studio in Seattle – and has racked up over 50 million streams on Spotify alone, all via word of mouth and non-stop touring. An ambitious 2019 touring schedule took the band throughout North America (including several major festivals), Europe (supporting Durand Jones & the Indications), and Japan.

Now, the band will return to the road in 2022 with a full North American headline tour and a new label home, Dualtone Records, home of The Lumineers, Shaky Graves, Shovels & Rope, and more.

The band’s new single, “Paddle to the Stars,” is out now on Dualtone, and a new album is in the works. Stay tuned!
