Waxahatchee to perform at the Bishop



arts filler

Sometimes, art comes out of pain, as it did with Waxahatchee’s third album “Ivy Tripp.” However, Katie Crutchfield’s fourth album as Waxahatchee is her most autobiographical and honest album yet. 

Waxahatchee will perform at the Bishop Bar on Nov. 9. Montreal-based Ought will open for the band, according to the Bishop’s website. 

Around the time of the release of “Ivy Tripp,” Crutchfield was experiencing emotional and professional exhaustion due to a noxious relationship, according to the Bishop’s website. 

“’Ivy Tripp doesn’t really have any resolution,” Crutchfield said on the Bishop’s website. “It’s a lot of beating around the bush, and superficially trying to see my life clearly, but just barely scratching the surface. ‘Out in the Storm’ digs into what I was going through without blinking. It’s a very honest record about a time in which I was not honest with myself.”

“Out in the Storm,” was recorded in Philadelphia with John Agnello as the producer, according to the Bishop’s website. Agnello and Crutchfield worked together for most of December 2016, along with the rest of the band. The group recorded most of the music live in order to give the album a fuller sound, and the result is one of Waxahatchee’s most guitar-driven releases.

Doors for the show open at 8:30 p.m., and it begins at 9:30. This event is for ages 18 and over, and tickets are between $16-$18.
