Three reasons to shake it on over to Schubas this fine evening...
If there's some weird area of space that exists somewhere between Fleetwood Mac and the Black Keys, then U.S Royalty
seem to live in it. This DC indie rock outfit is quite flexible as they can do both airy and melodic west coast pop and dingy blues guitar rock with equal focus. LISTEN: "Equestrian"
2. Like Pioneers
are no strangers to the Chicago scene seeing how the group features members of Chin up, Chin Up; The Narrator; The Vacation and Bound Stems. The term super-group might be a stretch here, but I do know that they're super good at crafting infectious pop jams that at times recall the catchiest work of The New Pornographers. LISTEN: "Oh, Magic"
Opening up tonight are indie-Americana Shy Technology
. These locals surely know their way around a guitar as they pull from the latter '90s era of indie rock, you know, when it still rocked but didn't lack melody, while still drawing in some folky leanings. LISTEN: "All The Time"
9:00 p.m. Wednesday, 4/11. Schubas. 18+. $10.
