A dense, guitar-crunching anthem for a long, hot summer night, "Lights Out" by Josh Flagg aims to light up the alt-rock scene.
Built to Spill returns on its eighth album, "Untethered Moon," with a new rhythm section but the same indie rock sound.
After 35 years, one of the greatest cult bands of all time, the Church, is wrestling with its identity. Its latest psychedelic and brooding sounds remind us of the angsty albums the band has released in the past, but some still doubt the recently released "Further/Deeper" is from the same band fans have all come to know and love.
Once upon a time in St. Louis, Three Merry Widows spun an elaborate, fairy-tale wonderland of music with their very own Alice front and center. Alice Spencer, Brian Simpson, Sean Garcia and Charles Shipman are reuniting for one night (sans original drummer Matt Albert) to tell their stories and sing their songs once again. Three Merry Widows perform at the Ready Room on Saturday, February 7.
