The Ballroom Thieves Announce Departure of Devin Mauch + Three Farewell Shows in New England
June 2, 2021 BY Nettwerk
As COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift, live music is returning to venues all across the country. As part of their reopening, Boston’s music hall The Sinclair kicked things off by announcing a two-night set from New England sweethearts, The Ballroom Thieves. For this special engagement, the band will perform songs from their debut album A Wolf in the Doorway on Friday, July 16, and their sophomore LP Deadeye on Saturday, July 17. Titled “Early Waypoints Of The Ballroom Thieves,” both sets are a retrospective look back at where they have been while also acknowledging what’s to come.
Meaning, both shows (including a third sold-out gig in Portland, ME) will be a farewell performance from bandmate Devin Mauch. The Ballroom Thieves formed in 2010 while guitarist Martin Earley and drummer Devin Mauch attended Stonehill College, just outside of Boston. A few years later, the band would add cellist Calin “Callie” Peters and record several albums, including the most recently released album Unlovely (via Nettwerk Records). It’s their unique brand of powerful and harmonious music, while never shying away from topics and ideas they are passionate about, that has charmed fans around the country. Their catalog has amassed over 90+ million streams, garnered key support from press (Rolling Stone, NPR Music, The Washington Post, American Songwriter, Consequence Of Sound, Paste) and radio (WBUR, WGBH, WETS, WMOT, Maine Public Radio, WCLX, WCLZ), and gained a loyal live following, with sold-out shows and festival spots at Boston Calling, Newport Folk, and Calgary Folk.
