21 years and over
A psychedelic, dreamy pop-rock band that has been successfully transplanted from the Champaign-Urbana music scene in recent years, SANTAH features beautiful harmonies from the brother/sister guitarists that only those good ol' blood ties can provide. Their latest release, last year's Who's In Town, features early demos and alternate incantations of relative historical significance. It shows the band creating exuberant springtime anthems with sharp guitar/synth tones, melding seamlessly with stark moments that let the bass, drums, and singers get up close and personal with their listeners. Lonesome Morning, the first full-length from Evansville, IN natives THUNDER DREAMER, alludes to an unassuming journey. Both musically and lyrically the album hits highs and lows, joys and anguish. Songwriter Steven Hamilton's poetically despondent song-craft gives nods to the likes of Jason Molina, David Bazan and Leonrd Cohen, finding glimmers of hope, longing and progress among the dark backdrop. Paired with their self-titled EP, the four-piece has reflected their brilliant ability to arrange Hamilton’s swooning song-craft against a classic indie rock outfit. Local rockers DITCH CLUB kick the show off tonight whilst celebrating the release of their latest EP, a high-octane rock record that'll have you thrashing and crashing early and often. Get some.
