Age of Aquarium: Futurebirds with Roadside Graves

The L.A./LA alliance between the Angeleno music blog Aquarium Drunkard (www.aquariumdrunkard.com) and One Eyed Jacks runs deeper than a shared taste in rock bands. Justin Gage (who writes the former) and Scott Simoneaux (who books the latter) form the creative team behind Autumn Tone Records, and their partnership has proved a symbiotic relationship, luring terrific, previously unheard-of West Coast acts like the Henry Clay People to New Orleans and inking locally born artist Blair Gimma to her first label deal. It was a formality, then, that Futurebirds, Autumn Tone's latest discovery, would eventually make its way to Toulouse Street. Unerring debut LP Hampton's Lullaby, due July 27, divvies its affections between the soaring, reverb-caked barnyard country of early My Morning Jacket and the windmilling, wheel-spinning Southern rock of Athens, Ga., homeys the Whigs. The band performs between headliners and well-worn Jersey folk-rockers Roadside Graves (authors of three fine Autumn Tone releases, most recently, the March EP You Won't Be Happy With Me) and carbonated NOLA homers the Blue Party. Tickets $10. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
