Together Since High School, The Districts Come Into Their Own on A Flourish And a Spoil

World Cafe: Next The Districts Leave School & End Up Head Of The Class

January 27, 2014 - It wasn't that long ago that the members of The District were in high school together in Lititz, Pennsylvania. Now after some wise touring (including a SXSW visit last year) and a video of one of the songs (that has over 300,000 views), they have an EP coming out on Fat Possum Records tomorrow.
The Districts are an impressive young four-piece from Lititz, in Lancaster County. They do the very Pixies loud-quiet-LOUD thing, but in a more textured way than simply turning their overdrive pedals on and off. Singer Rob Grote’s searing voice cut across the concert hall, blending with the band’s smartly-arranged instrumental interplay.
