Forecastle Preview: The Young Republic

The Young Republic

This year Forecastle has tapped Nashville-based pop sensation The Young Republic for the first night on The East Stage.  The Young Republic, fresh off of a bunch of shows at SXSW and NYC, is prepping the release of their new album BALLETESQUE which should be out this fall.  They have steadily been making a name for themselves as purveyors of all things pop music by taking cues from band like The Pixies, Bob Dylan, and Animal Collective just to name a few.  They are big in number (6 members) and have a big sound that will no doubt leave you dancing and spinning in the hot, hot sun.
