Andy Frasco & The U.N. Young Nocturnals Tour
8:00pm / Animas City Theatre
Two Sets  $40 / $45 / 21+ No Exceptions  Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm   270 capacity venue  Tickets only available online at http://www.animascitytheatre.com Andy Frasco & The U.N. have long been the high-flying DIY renegades of the touring scene known and loved for their kaleidoscopic musical fusion and one-of-a-kind onstage audacity. Now celebrating their longevity, the band is shaking things up with L'Optimist (Fun Machine Records/Soundly), as its title suggests, Frasco's most hopeful and enthusiastic collection thus far. A testament to Frasco's wide-ranging influences and boundless energy, his band's sixth released studio album sees the magnetic frontman continuing to chart his path of self-exploration and personal discovery through increasingly introspective lyricism and musical adventure. Songs like "Everything Bagel (Feat. Artikal Sound System)" and the deeply moving "Iowa Moon" touch on matters of the heart and mental health, emotional struggle and the sheer vulnerability of the human experience, all relayed through a wildly eclectic approach navigating funk, jazz, surf rock, blues, swing, gospel, reggae, exotica, and more with horn-blasted positivity and soulful power.   "I fight depression every single day," Frasco says, "and the only way to fight depression is through optimism. I try to write optimistic songs because optimism keeps me going. As humans, I don't think we're all that much different. Everyone needs a little optimism to keep going."   Having spent the first part of his career making his bones as a fun-loving frontman with a self-proclaimed "gift of gab," Frasco pushed his songwriting in more personal directions with 2020's Keep On Keepin' On and 2022's Wash, Rinse, Repeat.   Website: http://andyfrasco.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AndyFrascoBand/  Instagram: @andyfrasco  Twitter: @andyfrasco
