Thirty years ago, Edie Brickell and New Bohemians exploded out of Dallas and became an international sensation with their double-platinum debut album, Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, featuring the Top Ten hit, “What I Am.” The follow-up, 1990’s Ghost of a Dog, came quickly, but the NewBos didn’t put out an album until Stranger Things in 2006. Now, the group returns with Rocket, their first new music in a dozen years-and as the title indicates, they remain a propulsive and unclassifiable force, a whirlwind of musical ideas and styles.

“This band has that special relationship of youth,” says Edie Brickell. “They’re nice people, fun-loving, and we have an ease and sense of humor we developed together. I always missed them, so every chance we got, we would get together to play.”

Danny Bennett, President & CEO of Verve Label Group says of the signing to Verve Forecast, “Edie Brickell & New Bohemians have always been a testament to great musicianship, with unparalleled songwriting and improvisational prowess. The creative energy between Edie and the group is as electric as ever, and this new record captures that. We’re thrilled they’ve chosen Verve Forecast as their home.”

Though Brickell, of course, continued to create new music throughout the years-as a solo artist, with the Gaddabouts, and in collaboration with Steve Martin (with whom she co-wrote the 2016 Broadway musical Bright Star)-she never lost touch with her first band. Every few years, she would reconnect with some combination of guitarist Kenny Withrow, drummer Brandon Aly, bass player Brad Houser, and percussionist John Bush and they would improvise new songs, just like they always did. But beyond the occasional show, the New Bohemians remained a private affair.

    Edie Brickell has such an amazing voice. I would love to see her at a great venue like The Crystal Ballroom and getting free tickets leaves some cash to hit up Lola’s Room before the show.

    I would love to see this show because live music is healing for the soul, and my soul is hurting. Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians ushered me through early adolescence and continue to be a balm to soothe me when the world is too much. Peace, Music, and Calmness… in a lovely venue like Crystal Ballroom… what more could I ask for?

    Oh, wow…just reading about this concert floods me with memories. During a hot, Texas summer thirty years ago, my husband and I fell in love to the soundtrack of Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars. We wore out that original cassette tape, replaced it with the CD, then he bought the album for me on vinyl as an anniversary gift when we got a turntable a few years ago. It would be SO fantastic to win tickets and surprise him with a romantic date as we celebrate 3 decades of love <3 Thanks!
