LIVE! With music by Trampled By Turtles, Trout Fishing in America and more

Celebrated Minnesota sextet Trampled By Turtles will perform at at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8 at JJ’s Live at 3615 N. Steele Blvd. in Fayetteville. TBT is on tour in support of a brand new album, “Alpenglow,” produced by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco. The album consists of 11 new songs that feature the group’s signature blend of rock, folk, punk, country and progressive bluegrass. They will be joined by special guest Sumbuck (featuring Taylor Meier from Caamp) as openers.

For “Alpenglow’s” first single, “It’s So Hard To Hold On,” the group asked their legions of passionate fans for photos and videos of their experiences at Trampled By Turtles shows. The band was completely overwhelmed by what they received, and even more so by the hundreds of heartfelt stories and emotional sentiments that accompanied them. The result is a joyful video that provides a wonderful example of what concertgoers can expect from a Trampled By Turtles show. See the video on Trampled By Turte’s YouTube page.
