Fusion Shows and The Crofoot are proud to announce the return of Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional) to the Crofoot Ballroom on Friday, November 18, 2011, as part of his solo acoustic fall tour. After selling the Crofoot in December of last year, Chris wanted nothing more than to return to the venue as soon as he could.

"I wish I had one of these in my hometown," quipped Chris while sitting on the edge of the stage at the completion of his show last year.

Dashboard Confessional has been performing for 11 years now, starting as the solo project of Carrabba, formerly the singer of Further Seems Forever. They've released six albums, toured relentlessly, and build a rabid fanbase, built around impassioned sing-alongs.

Tickets for this all-ages show are $25.00 in advance ($28.00 at the door), and go onsale on Friday, October 14 at noon! All ages are welcome, and doors open at 7pm. Support will be announced very soon. Pick up tickets at Fusion Shows, TheCrofoot.com, and at the Crofoot box office.





JARROD GORBEL


When Jarrod Gorbel began writing new songs for his band The Honorary Title last year, he was exhausted from the trip his musical career had taken. He had dealt with an ever-changing band lineup, label switches, personal demons and crises, and the overall ego battering that comes with the current evolution of the music industry. “It was kind of like VH1’s Behind The Music, minus the fame or wealth,” says the singer-songwriter, whose new album Devil’s Made A New Friend will be his debut release under his own name. “But all of those experiences made me realize how far away I’d gotten from who I really was, as a person and an artist.” Though the past couple years had been a nightmarish rollercoaster ride, they were also part of a crucial rite of passage for Gorbel. By last summer, he knew he had to find a way to create something closer to his own heart: unfiltered, unbiased, produced in a way that didn’t veer too far from the songs’ original intention. The results are Gorbel’s best songs yet, mining classic soul, traditional folk and Americana, and incorporating strings, horns and female backing vocals for a sound more lush and organic than any of his previous work.
