Wreckless Eric

Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.

Petra’s
1919 Commonwealth Avenue
Charlotte, NC 28205

Tickets: $9.00

Eric Goulden, the man everyone knows as Wreckless Eric, is a rare example of an older and established artist who hasn’t lapsed into comfortable formulas. His latest album Transience has been universally acclaimed alongside 2016’s‘ amERICa’ and 2018’s Construction Time & Demolition as his best work.

For live performances, Eric draws on material from all stages of his forty something year career—he may even play a tune or two from his early days on the Stiff record label including of course Whole Wide World, though this certainly won’t be a leisurely stroll through the glory days of nostalgia. Using his huge-sounding acoustic guitar, electric piano, and electric guitar through a series of homemade fuzz boxes and electronic devices, he takes audiences on an emotionally and sonically challenging voyage in and out of dissonance, soundscapes, and great moments of pop.
