Blitzen Trapper




Blitzen Trapper has been exploring the contours and boundaries of American music since they came together ten years ago in Portland, Oregon.  Melding country sounds of the ‘70s, progressive rock of the ‘80s, and the ‘60s folk movement, Blitzen Trapper’s six members, led by front man, Eric Earley, intelligently integrate classical rock sounds with modern production techniques. Their latest album, Destroyer of the Void, was released earlier this year. They performed at The Trocadero in Center City, Philadelphia.
