With JP and Loveday of Freight

Thursday, September 21, 2023

Dakota Curtis and The Dark, bring their original Americana to Rochester via Bloomington, IN. Encompassing sounds of early rock & roll, classic country & heartland rock, with hints of spaghetti westerns and frantic cosmic energy, Dakota Curtis and The Dark is powerful force of nature. One part Steve Earle and one part Lou Reed, Dakota expertly narrates life in the hardscrabble Midwest with an art rock flair. Come check out this Hoosier trio on their 2023 NE tour while you can.
While both JP and Loveday remain busy with Freight’s ever expanding tour schedule, the duo have crafted an in-demand intimate show that finds them reaching new audiences near and far. Combining the best of Freight’s road tested material and delving deeper into each individual’s unique songwriting and vocal stylings, JP and Loveday offer a show fit for the limelight of Saturday night, or the the quiet reflection of Sunday morning. For fans of Gillain Welch/ David Rawlings, The Civil Wars, Watchouse, and The Louvin Brothers
