Gang of Thieves "Born to Be Loud" Album Release Tour

21+ // $7 // 8pm

Burlington, VT's Gang of Thieves have officially hit the road in support of new album “Born to be Loud”, and will be bringing their unique breed of funky rock and roll to Bridgeport, CT on 10.13. 

High energy and an unforgettable live performance is the hallmark of these Green Mountain rockers, who have captivated audiences of all ages from coast to coast. The key to the Gangs universal appeal is their infectious sense of fun and showmanship, delivered with a hint of spiritual and political awareness that inspires and encourages positivity.

Recorded in Wall, NJ with acclaimed Trumpet player and Engineer Steve Jankowski (Blood Sweat and Tears, Chicago, Nile Rogers), “Born to be Loud” takes the Gang's explosive energy to the next level. “We feel like this album really captures the live energy of our shows that our fans have responded so well to. We are really excited about this one.” says lead singer and electric violinist Michael Reit.

Don't miss out on one of the fall's most electric live performances!

Armies meld electro-pop with duet style anthems inspired by French pop duets of the sixties. Drawing on themes based around temptation and fidelity, Armies is the darker, seedier underbelly of love put to the soundtrack of a nightclub bathroom. Armies began in Venice Beach, CA as a commercial project conceived by Dave Gutter. For the purpose of TV and Film placement only, Gutter was commissioned to write folk style duets for male and female vocals for Viacom/Rumble. After auditioning vocalists in Los Angeles, Gutter returned to Portland and finished the record with long time friend and singer-songwriter Anna Lombard. August, 2015 marked the release of Armies’ self-titled debut which has been featured as no. 1 in Rolling Stone’s ’15 Great Albums You Didn’t Hear in 2015’.

“With Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin’s duets in mind, their voices blend perfectly on an excellent set about characters that are sad, vengeful, seedy, sneaky and jealous.”
-Rolling Stone
