About This Event
Whats so bad about happy? John Fullbright sings on the opening track of his new album, Songs. Its a play on the writers curse, the notion that new material can only come through heartbreak or depression, that great art is only born from suffering.A normal person, if they find themselves in a position of turmoil or grief, theyll say, I need to get out of this as fast as I can, says Fullbright. A writer will say, How long can I stay in this until I get something good? And thats a bullshit way to look at life, he laughs.That plainspoken approach is part of whats fueled the young Oklahomans remarkable rise. It was just two years ago that Fullbright released his debut studio album, From The Ground Up to a swarm of critical acclaim. The LA Times called the record preternaturally self-assured, while NPR hailed him as one of the 10 Artists You Should Have Known in 2012, saying its not every day a new artistearns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman, but Fullbrights music makes sense in such lofty company. The Wall Street Journal crowned him as giving one of the years 10 best live performances, and the album also earned him the ASCAP Foundations Harold Adamson Lyric Award. If there was any doubt that his debut announced the arrival of a songwriting force to be reckoned with, it was put to rest when From The Ground Up was nominated for Best Americana Album at the GRAMMY Awards, which placed Fullbright alongside some of the genres most iconic figures, including Bonnie Raitt.Moxi Theater is operating at Full CapacityReserve a Table in Advance Online.All Responsible Ages Permitted*PHOTO ID REQUIRED FOR ENTRYThe Moxi Theater is proudly partnered with Lunas Tacos s is located at 806 9th St. – next door to the Moxi and is open for Dinner, Happy Hour, and Late Night.
