I’ve been bumming pretty hard on music recently. It’s one of those dry spells where nothing new seems to capture your interest. This, however, has pulled me out of my slump. It’s hosted by the wonderful blog, Microphone Memory Emotion, and is decidedly one of the best lineups of the summer. You’re probably already familiar with Julian Lynch, Ducktails, and Big Troubles. I’ve never blogged about La Big Vic before, though. They reside in a place of wonderful “scapes,” dream-scapes, haze-scapes, sound-scapes. It’s a lot of beautiful noise, and somehow ends up being catchy pop music. I’m loving it right now, and you should definitely get to this show early to check them out. Campfires, from Chicago, also play beautiful, beautiful music. It’s steeped in lots of guitar and has that sort of magical Pavement-y feeling, but sound more like experimental Velvet Underground. Sort of. Point being, I like them a lot. Get to this show early, and stay late!
