The Rifles (Unplugged)

23 May 2021




UNDER THE INFLUENCE presents The Rifles (Unplugged)

British indie outfit the Rifles rose to popularity in the mid-2000s with a jaunty garage rock & roll sound that’s equal parts Jam-like swagger and a playfulness not unlike contemporaries The Kooks. First grabbing public attention with the 2005 hit “Local Boy,” the band found chart success in the latter part of the decade with their first two albums reaching number two on the U.K. indie charts and 2009’s career highlight Great Escape. Amid subsequent rock-oriented releases like 2014’s None the Wiser, the Rifles also embraced the acoustic format, releasing a pair of acoustic EPs and a 2017 unplugged album which they recorded at Abbey Road.

This event’s performance date has changed (the old date was Friday, 21 Aug 2020 at 7:30 PM). The show will now take place on Sunday, 23 May 2021 at 7:30 PM.
