The Singer-Songwriter Plays Tower Theatre on April 26

Indie-folk singer Phosphorescent (Matthew Houck), will perform in Oklahoma City on Fri., Apr 26 at the historic Tower Theatre. Tickets are on sale now.

In the five years since Matthew Houck’s last record as Phosphorescent, he fell in love, left New York for Nashville, became a father, built a studio from the ground up by hand and became a father again. Oh, and somewhere along the way, he nearly died of meningitis. Life, love, new beginnings, death— “It’s laughable, honestly, the amount of ‘major life events’ we could chalk up if we were keeping score,” Houck says. “A lot can happen in five years.”

On C’est La Vie, the first album of new Phosphorescent material since 2013’s critically-acclaimed Muchacho, Houck takes stock of these changes through the luminous, star-kissed sounds he has spent a career refining. By now, Houck has mastered the contours of this place, as intimate as it is grand, somewhere between dreamed and real, where the great lyrical songwriters meet experimental pioneers and somehow distill into the same person. On this album, Houck reckons with that void — the vanishing point where our individual significance melts into the stars — and sums it up thusly: C'est La Vie.  

Phosphorescent plays Fri., Apr. 26, 2019 at Tower Theatre in Oklahoma City. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $23 - $35 in advance.

Tower Theatre is an independently-owned, live music and movie venue, located at 425 NW 23rd Street in the Oklahoma City’s historic Uptown 23rd District.
