Rough Francis are a hard-edged, musically adventurous rock band from Burlington, VT. Core members Bobby, Julian, and Urian Hackney represent the second generation of unsung pioneers of Midwest punk rock, Death. With Tyler Bolles on bass, the band embraces the same mixture of hard rock and proto-punk as Death as well as the melodic accents of classic British Invasion-era tunes. Their latest record, Urgent Care, came out in 2020.
Opener: Lily Seabird, 6:30pm
Lily Seabird is a Burlington-based singer-songwriter. Her acoustic-driven pop record Bug came out in 2021 and touches on themes of insecurity, self-worth, and loss. Her band features Noah Schneidman, Zack James, and Greg Freeman.
