Blind Pilot’s playing at my house (my house)

You’re blinded by the dazzling attractiveness of this sextet, no? Wait until you hear them perform a stripped-down, all-acoustic set at my house on Tuesday, August 7! And then add to the mix that Tyler Lyle is flying out from California to open the show, and I think you got yourself the house concert of the summer.

Blind Pilot has been a favorite of mine ever since I heard this song in 2009, via my friend Dainon. Since then, Blind Pilot has continued to release amazing music, and most recently I just saw them wow a crowd of thousands at Red Rocks, opening for The Shins and The Head & The Heart. You also know that Tyler Lyle is one of my favorite new songwriting talents, and I am beyond thrilled to have him coming back.

TICKETS ARE HERE. This will probably fill up (please see the “HOW IT WORKS” segment on the EventBrite page). Whee!

  • Holy crackers!!! This will be my first house show, and it looks like a helluva way to start.

  • First of all, I can’t believe that was 2009. Second of all, remember when I followed them around for a few days this year? I’m jealous you get to see them in your own backyard … and I’m currently contemplating how I can get myself over there, too. Can there be a acoustic, barefoot in the grass, session? If so, I’m there.

  • I just got my tickets and want to thank you for opening up your home! Their acoustic encore in Telluride was probably my favorite moment of last summer, so I can’t wait for the house show! Thanks!

  • SO JEALOUS!!! They were amazing at 9:30 Club on their last tour, and I’m sure the experience in a house show will be transcendent.

  • I’m wondering if I need to move to Colorado. Between your house concerts and Telluride, I feel like being elsewhere is a waste of time.

  • If they want to play at my house on July 29th, I think we can work them in . . .

  • Hi Heather,

    For the first time I visited your blog and listened to Blind Pilot; wow what a band!
    Thank you for your blog and the music in it; I enjoy it very much.

    Kind regards from a country far away

  • Is this show REALLY sold out? We’ll be seeing them in Chicago on the 4th and were hoping for an encore in CO on our way back to WA.

  • Hey Heather! I just got home from the Blind Pilot show at the Newport in Columbus, OH tonight, and I had to tell you how DAMN AMAZING this band is. They closed with a completely unplugged version of “Three Rounds and a Sound.” All six of them grabbed their instruments, jumped off the stage, and set up in front of the stage in the crowd. It was pure bliss. Please tell them next week that all my life I have dreamed of being in the room when music was made like that, and they brought that dream to life. Please let them know that they gave that gift to people, and have a blast at the house show next week. So jealous. :)

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
