The Fillmore – San Francisco
September 29th, 2015 //

Releasing his debut album Goon in March, Tobias Jesso Jr. has been compared to singer-songwriters of the 60’s and 70’s. After playing bass for The Sessions in Los Angeles, the Vancouver native moved back home after his mother was diagnosed with cancer. In the abruptness of his move, he left all his instruments in LA and subsequently taught himself how to play the piano, the main instrument used in most of his solo work.

Pulling from his experiences in LA that included a painful breakup, Goon received universal acclaim from contemporary music critics, including some praise from Rolling Stone for his “12 beautifully lean ballads sung in a vulnerable tenor.” With the help of Chet “JR” White from Girls, Patrick Carney from The Black Keys, Jonathan Rado from Foxygen, John Collins from The New Pornographers and Grammy-winning record producer and sound engineer Ariel Rechstaid, Jesso followed through with his vision and maintained the timeless honesty of his emotional songs on Goon.

This Tuesday, Jesso is bringing his heart to The Fillmore with support from Brooklyn-based synthpop trio Wet. You can buy tickets for $25, or you could win a pair of tickets by registering your full name and email below.

Contest ends this Tuesday at 3 p.m.
