Futurebirds: Forest Family

Futurebirds have been around since 2009, and their constant touring since then has helped them to refine their songwriting craft while winning them a reputation for raw and exhilarating performances. The eclectic quintet, hailing from Athens, GA, strives for inventiveness and creativity while building up their songs from an earthy, rural base. Their sophomore album, Baba Yaga, was released last month. The combined effort of the band’s five different songwriters, it delves into intimate moments and soars with the adventurous force that characterizes their live shows. Futurebirds will play the Bowery Ballroom on May 31.
