Justin Osborne going “rogue” in solo acoustic show at The Royal American in February

Acoustic environment


Justin Osborne, singer and songwriter for alternative folk band SUSTO, will perform a solo acoustic show at the Royal American on Fri. Feb. 7. The show, titled Rogue Acoustic, will be recorded for a live album.

“When I started touring as SUSTO, it was primarily as a solo artist, just me and my guitar,” Osborne said in a press release. “There was something about the connection I felt with the audience during these shows; it’s different when it’s just you and them. A dialogue starts to develop, and the whole experience takes on the feeling of a good, extensive conversation. To me that’s always been a very special sort of performance, and my goal with Rogue Acoustic is to return to that and capture this type of connection in the best way possible.”

Mel Washington and Fleur Geurl will open the show. Tickets go on sale Jan. 17 and will be sold through citypapertickets.com.
