The Pines is one of the four Riverfront Rendezvous feature performances for the Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series.
About the headliners: Influenced by a collage of rootsy Americana, folk music and space-age country, The Pines are one of the most distinct and powerful indie-rock/Americana groups to hit the national scene in years.
Their music effortlessly combines ambient atmospherics with rich, warm vocals and earthy, acoustic instruments. Their latest album, Above The Prairie, plays out like a richly textured sonic encyclopedia of barren, beautiful small towns that dot the highways and expanses of Iowa.
Having toured with folk veteran Mason Jennings, The Pines’ haunted folk music has been well received by critics and audiences alike. Their “richly resonant indie-folk” (AV Club) and “gothic intensity” (AllMusic) will make for a powerful set you don’t want to miss.
About the Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series: The Levitt AMP Stevens Point Music Series is a CREATE Experience supported in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a private foundation that empowers towns and cities across America to transform underused public spaces into thriving destinations through the power of free, live music. This project breathes new life into Pfiffner Park—a historically rich green space along the Wisconsin River—with the aim to strengthen the local community by helping to create a thriving city center that welcomes people of all walks of life to experience the cultural scene in the historic neighborhoods surrounding the city’s core. Presented by Create Portage County, a nonprofit that leads community development efforts through continued arts advocacy and creative placemaking.
