Big Thief have opened up their soundchecks to school groups for outings that are a cut above your usual trip to a cave or a box factory. Ahead of their upcoming 2023 US tour, the acclaimed indie folk quartet announced on social media that they were inviting teachers to bring along their classes to soundcheck to meet the band and ask questions about touring, songwriting and performing.

The band, fronted by singer/songwriter Adrienne Lenker, said they were looking to bring: “an educational component to the touring process” and that they hoped students would be “able to come see the soundcheck and ask questions and share in a discussion about creativity, music, playing shows, songwriting, or whatever!” Teachers can email the band directly to arrange the visits, which should hopefully result in swarms of new teenage indie folk bands.
