The Nude Party + Ceramic Animal
June 17 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm$20
Formed in a North Carolina dormitory in 2012, The Nude Party celebrates the clanging rock of the ’60s while blending modern elements that have made them beloved by fans of all ages.
Originally an extended group of childhood friends and step-siblings who decided to start a band, The Nude Party began learning to play instruments at Appalachian State University. Soon after coming together, the sextet moved into a lake house and started a nightly ritual of jamming in the basement. It was at a regular gig as the house band at a certain locale that the group’s practice of performing in the buff earned them a local reputation as “the naked party band.” They adopted the moniker The Nude Party just in time to move onto bookings at local clubs and bars, where they had to perform clothed.
They debuted with the Hot Tub EP in 2016 and followed up their eponymous full-length debut in 2018. The Nude Party was heralded by Rolling Stone as “equal parts ‘I’m Waiting for the Man’ Velvet Underground and Exile on Main Street Stones.” The band’s sophomore album, Midnight Manor, was released in 2020 and earned critical acclaim.
Since their inception, The Nude Party relocated to the Catskills in New York and watched their fan base steadily grow as their music reaches the masses. They have performed with the likes of Jack White, The Arctic Monkeys, and Greta Van Fleet.
