The Outer Vibe

Saturday, July 1 @ 8:15pm Rackham Stage

The Outer Vibe returns to Top of the Park after becoming an audience favorite for the past few seasons. With an outsized stage presence that captures what they call a “Big America” energy, they deliver songs that draw from the Motor City’s passion and power, the upbeat, good feelings of the West Coast, and a cinematic Southwestern nostalgia—a blend they’ve named “surf disco.” Their first album, Hoka Hey, garnered them national attention and was influenced by artists like Maroon 5, Muse, Queen, and Led Zeppelin. They’ve wrapped up a national tour in support of their 2015 release, Full Circle, which was created in collaboration with producer Brad Dollar (Grateful Dead, Keb-Mo, The National) and mastering engineer Joe LaPorta (The Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Vampire Weekend). Asked what it sounds like: “Clint Eastwood drinking a piña colada at a Dick Dale concert.”
