21 years and over
Cincinnati's POMEGRANATES formed in 2006 and after humble beginnings launched themselves into the public eye with three records in three years and garnered strong acclaim for their scrappy, atmospheric indie-rock. Last year the band released their fourth LP, Heaven, on Austin-based Modern Outsider, and with it took a giant leap forward to further diversify their songwriting while perfecting their pop accessibility. With two distinct singers that are equally talented, POMEGRANATES blend the alternating vocals with shimmering guitars, twinkling keys and a propulsive rhythm section to make stirring psychedelic dream rock that's as sweet and innocent as it is reckless and wild. Nebraska trio NOAH'S ARK WAS A SPACESHIP return to the Bottle tonight with their hot and fuzzy indie-rock that harkens back to the late 80s, early 90s heyday of sludgey alt-rock. They’re travelling through the Midwest debuting tracks off their recent LP, You Need You, out last month via Slumber Party Records. Newly christened Chicago band WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY opens tonight’s Free Monday with their noisy punk rock that’s both dissonant and muscular. No sleeves, no problems.
