The Whisperlights Announce Breakup and Final Show at Crescent Ballroom

After five years of fun and memorable shows, The Whisperlights are calling it quits. Like many in long-distance relationships, the band members tried to make it work by getting together once a year or so. With members living on both coasts, it's difficult to get the full eight-piece band together. This energetic chamber pop band will perform its final show at Crescent Ballroom on Saturday, January 11 -- then they're gone for good.

"We want to have a party and play our favorites one more time before everyone moves too far away to come back for shows easily," says singer/guitarist Ilya Riske. "We're playing all rockers at this show. Well, maybe one slow jam."
