Bozeman’s Kitchen Dwellers Will Return Home for Two Night New Years Eve Run at the ELM

It’s already shaping up to be a storybook ending for 2021 at the ELM — Bozeman’s beloved Kitchen Dwellers will be cooking up two nights of jamgrass on Thursday, December 30th with The Dusty Pockets and New Years Eve, Friday, December 31st with Daniel Donato!

If you’ve been around the Montana music scene for a couple years, then you’re almost guaranteed to have heard of the Kitchen Dwellers. They’re one of a handful of Montana bands that have been successful enough in the past decade to tour across the country, release impressive studio albums and work with prominent industry professionals.

Over the years, Bozeman and Missoula concert goers have had a blast watching the Kitchen Dwellers perform at venues like the Top Hat, Wilma and Rialto… but this two-night NYE run at the ELM is going be something else. There may not be a more fitting band to break in the ELM on New Years Eve than the Dwellers!

About Kitchen Dwellers

In the near-decade they’ve been together, the Montana-based four-piece has performed for thousands at Red Rocks, shared bills with the likes of Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters, and Twiddle, graced festival stages from Northwest String Summit to WinterWonderGrass, and transcended traditional genre boundaries, blending virtuosic bluegrass wizardry with ecstatic rock and roll energy and adventurous psychedelia. With their spectacular new album, ‘Muir Maid,’ the group has come fully into their own, seamlessly blending the past, present, and future of string band music to create their most daring and collaborative work yet. Produced by The Infamous Stringdusters’ Chris Pandolfi, ‘Muir Maid’ is built around live performances that capture the intoxicating energy of band’s concerts and showcase their dazzling musicianship, airtight harmonies, and transportive storytelling. Lightning-fast fretwork and brilliant solos abound on the record, but far from showing off, the instrumental pyrotechnics here always come in service of the song, a guiding principle for the group. ‘Muir Maid’ follows Kitchen Dwellers’ acclaimed 2017 LP, ‘Ghost In The Bottle,’ which was produced by Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn and featured a slew of special guests, including Little Feat’s Bill Payne and Greensky Bluegrass’s Anders Beck. Tracks from the record racked up more than a million streams on Spotify and garnered rave reviews across the board, with The Huffington Post hailing the band as “a bluegrass phenomenon” and Relix praising the unique way the group’s songwriting “embrac[es] their love of electronica, metal…and everything in between.”
