Speedy Ortiz Tickets
Perpetually tongue-in-cheek and always packing punk punches, Speedy Ortiz quickly found its footing in the indie music circuit with the release of 2013's "Major Arcana."
Those with Speedy Ortiz tickets will see the band will hit several music festivals, including Chicago's Riot Fest and Austin, Texas' Fun Fun Fun Fest, before they head across the Atlantic for shows across Europe and the U.K. Speedy Ortiz has shows booked in Germany, where they'll play Berlin and Hamburg, among others, and play select Italian dates in Turin and Bologna. They'll also head to Switzerland, Ireland, Belgium and England, performing in Leeds, London, Manchester and more.
Sadie Dupuis is a big fan of hip-hop and R&B. In 2015, the bandleader told Pitchfork that her favourite lyricist at the moment was Nicki Minaj, and that she is enamoured with the work of Mykki Blanco, Lizzo and Dutch ReBelle. She admits to listening to a lot of Kelis while writing the band's newest release, "Foil Deer," and even tried to emulate the R&B singer on one new song, "Puffer."
Coming out of Northampton, Massachusetts Speedy Ortiz once existed solely as the 2011 solo project of frontwoman Sadie Dupuis, who was at the time teaching songwriting at a summer camp. This period proved fruitful for Dupuis, as she released two records as a solo artist, the EP "Cop Kicker" and the full-length, "The Death of Speedy Ortiz." Eventually, Dupuis decided to recruit a full band for her music. Today, Dupuis is on vocals and lead guitar, Mike Falcone plays drums, Darl Ferm is on the bass and Devin McKnight also plays guitar.
Speedy Ortiz' debut full-length album, "Major Arcana" met a whirlwind of acclaim when it released via Carpark Records in 2013. The album's success caught the ears of hugely important acts like Stephen Malkmus from Pavement and Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth, both of whom brought her on tour in the earlier stages of her career. Since then, the band has been scooped up for music festivals, including Spain's Primavera Sound, Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival and San Francisco's Outside Lands.
Heralded by respected music publications like Pitchfork--who gave it the celebrated "Best New Music" designation--The A.V. Club, Consequence of Sound and Rolling Stone, the band's first release, "Major Arcana" was a massive success on the U.S. Heatseekers chart. Critics lauded the album for manipulating '90s rock tropes through a modern punk filter, paired to cheeky, irreverent lyric writing. The band's second full-length release, "Foil Deer," also premiered to acclaim for its angsty riffs and creative lines.
Well-known for their unpredictability, Speedy Ortiz often like to play around with their audiences. The band sometimes make jokes with their fans, giving their songs fake names. The band makes great use of their sense of humour to entertain the crowd. Fans with Speedy Ortiz tickets can expect a good time and a rowdy show in line with the '90s rock and punk shows of their music's forefathers.
