If you can't see Greta Van Fleet on Aug. 19, you'll have another chance when they return to the tri-state area this fall.
It's starting to feel like Groundhog Day, with the way Greta Van Fleet has been selling out shows like crazy this summer.
Of their remaining 12 gigs in August, the rising rock band only has two that aren't sold out.
Greta Van Fleet will visit neighboring Pennsylvania to play to a sold-out crowd at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster on Saturday, Aug. 19. They'll be joined by openers The Glorious Sons.
The two remaining gigs that haven't sold out this month are Aug. 29 in North Carolina and Aug. 31 in Tennessee. But there's more than enough time left for those tickets to disappear, between now and then.
Who are they?
GVF is a modern rock 'n' roll band rooted in the genre's strongest traditions: super-sized hooks, raw riffage and the sweeping vocals of a frontman who was born to wail.
A band of brothers from Frakenmuth, Michigan - the group has drawn comparison to one of their musical heroes: Led Zeppelin.
Drummer Scott Begin from the popular and national touring Sublime tribute band Badfish has been won over by these young rockers.
"There’s this new band we’ve been digging on called Greta Van Fleet," Begin said. "They’re basically Led Zeppelin reincarnated; and Zeppelin is probably my favorite band. I wouldn’t say it lightly that they’re Led Zeppelin reincarnated. If you give these guys a listen, they are incredible. We’ve just been jamming to these guys."
GVF is comprised of siblings Josh Kiszka (vocals), Jake Kiszka (guitar), Sam Kiszka (bass/keys) and friend Danny Wagner (drums).
Formed in 2012, the band isn't exactly brand new. Yet it does feel like that to some, because they've been buzzing pretty hard this year. In the spring, they dropped the new EP, "Black Smoke Rising," boasting their viral single "Highway Tune."
Also in the spring, they toured as support with English rockers The Struts. The bands played a date at the Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach in May. GVF will reunite with The Struts for one more gig in St. Louis on Sept. 2.
In late September, the Michigan quartet will play a string of gigs in Europe.

GVF will return to the tri-state area with a show in Baltimore, Md., on Oct. 3; and at the Rock Allegiance music festival in New Jersey on Oct. 7. The music festival will include big names August Burns Red, Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie and more.
Considering how fast Greta Van Fleet's shows have been selling out, you might not be able to get tickets for their latter gigs if you wait until the last minute.
