Crack the Sky

August 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Originally formed in Ohio back in the ‘70s (and later adopted in Maryland as “The Beatles of Baltimore”), this beloved progressive rock band is still going strong with their unique balance of artfully experimental and methodically structured rock-n-roll. Their self-titled debut garnered the Album of the Year award from Rolling Stone magazine in 1976, which went on to include the album more recently in its 2015 list of 50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time.

Likening Crack the Sky to Steely Dan and the Tubes, Rolling Stone has called the band’s musical output “impeccable”, dubbing founding member John Palumbo’s lead vocals “chameleonlike, resembling Ian Hunter’s and Bowie’s.” Crack the Sky’s last studio album, Living In Reverse, cracked the charts in August 2018 with their highest charting debut in 40 years at #7 Heatseekers, #31 Independent Current Albums, and #40 Top Current Albums.

They will play at the Avalon Theatre August 5th.
