Miles Nielsen returns to Kryptonite for Halloween show
By Jim Hagerty
Miles Nielsen isn’t letting a busy touring and recording agenda stop him from celebrating Halloween in Rockford. Nielsen and band, The Rusted Hearts, will play a high-profile show Friday, Oct. 29, at Kryptonite Music Lounge.
Nielsen is fresh off a string of dates and sessions for the followup to Miles, which continues to receive favorable reviews. His live shows have become known across the country for their vocally-charged Beatleseque tunes backed by a host of versatile players. The Rusted Hearts are Daniel McMahon, Adam Plamann, Andrew Scarpaci, Micky Rosenquist and several others.
Miles Nielsen is also slated to join Ernie Hendrickson and Darren Garvey for the Third Annual Thanksgiving Eve Holiday Concert at Sullivan Theater (former New American Theater) Wednesday, Nov. 24.
Friday’s show starts at 9 p.m. Kyrptonite Music Lounge is at 308 W. State St. Advanced tickets can be purchased at kyrptonitebar.com. The club can be reached at (815) 965-0931.
