Cure for the Common closes summer concert series


BIG SKY – Bozeman’s Cure for the Common plays the final show of the 2016 Music in the Mountains free summer concert season on Thursday, Sept. 1, with a show that is likely to turn Town Center Park into one big dance party.

The five piece funk-rock arsenal combines an affinity for deep dance grooves with a love for searing progressive rock peaks. The widespread appeal and originality of their “Montana-grown electro thunder funk” sound has earned CFTC a home on the national touring circuit and an ever-growing following that matches the band’s ambitious resolve to make it big.

A groundswell of grassroots momentum has landed CFTC gigs at festivals including Arkansas’s Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival, Contour Music Festival in Jackson, Wyoming, and Florida’s Purple Hatters Ball. They’ve appeared in line-ups alongside heavier hitters including Thievery Corporation, Big Gigantic, Sound Tribe Sector 9 and Umphrey’s McGee, among others.

This will be the band’s first time performing at Big Sky’s outdoor summer concert series.

“It’s very exciting to finally be playing Music in the Mountains,” said Cure for the Common drummer Joe Sheehan. “We’re looking forward to the opportunity to bring a strong finish to a killer season of music. When people leave, we want them to feel fulfilled, excited, inspired, and maybe a little bit exhausted—like they just went on a hike through some epic peaks and beautiful valleys.”

Town Center Park opens at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1, with Cure for the Common taking the stage at 7 p.m.
