Jimmy Gnecco Opening for Lana Del Rey at
By now, many of you have heard of the sensation that is Lana Del Rey. It seems she came onto the scene out of nowhere with her EP Born to Die and hit singles, “Video Games,” “Blue Jeans,” and “Summertime Sadness.” Her soft yet powerful and poignant voice balanced with the surrealistic beats make for one heck of an attractive record and of this Lana Del Rey is fully aware. In her mid twenties her music sensibilities are that of an industry veteran. Though this is, longevity is what makes a star and to that only time will tell. But for now, grab your hubby and get ready to enjoy an amazing performance by Lana.
Although Lana Del Ray is the main attraction, another act not to miss on Thursday, is Jimmy Gnecco of OURS who will be opening for Lana at the Masonic Temple in Detroit, MI. Gnecco will be performing solo acoustic in support of the North American Tour of Lana Del Rey during the month of May. Jimmy Gnecco is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and frontman for the versatile alternative rock band OURS. He and his band have gained worldwide critical acclaim through the singer’s dynamic voice and songwriting style, as is evident on their most recent release Ballet the Boxer 1 from 2013.
“After enjoying Lana’s music for years,” Gnecco writes, “I had the pleasure to meet her after my recent solo show at The Viper Room. I have great respect for her creative talent and ability to make incredible nights of music possible for us throughout this month.” As Bullet Magazine stated, “When I first heard Jimmy Gnecco was opening for Lana Del Rey on her current tour, I thought it was an odd match. It actually makes perfect sense. The veteran Ours frontman is essentially the prototype LDR video bro come to life, the hair, the ink, the tragic melodrama of his songs.”
This Thursday should be a wonderful evening full of great music from start to finish. Be sure to get there early and catch Jimmy Gnecco’s solo acoustic set which will set you up perfectly for the music sensibilities of Lana Del Rey.
