Augustana are an American rock/ indie band from San Diego, and are similar to the bands Jack's Mannequin and The Maine.
This four piece band has to date released four albums, their debut album "Midwest Skies and Sleepless Mondays," "All the Stars and Boulevards," "Can't Love, Can't Hurt" and their recently released self titled album "Augustana." Popular songs by this band are "Boston" and "Sweet and Low."
After the release of their fourth album, Augustana was dropped from their record label Epic Records. Following this blow, the band hit more trouble when some of its members decided to leave the band. Despite this however, the rest of the band remain together and continue to tour and perform.
A band who has not had outstanding reviews for their live performances, this is one of those gigs where other than the standard performance not a lot else will happen. If you are seeking a night out listening to live music this could be for you, however I will say there are better alternatives out there.
1st Feb. Gramercy Theatre - New York
