T Bird and the Breaks
Sept 13 | Led by gravel-voiced showman Tim Crane — aka T Bird — the 10-piece Austin, Texas, soul patrol known as the Breaks is prepping its third LP, What It Is (Harmonism). At 10 p.m. at Publiq House.
Wed. Sept. 10 | Ernest Greene's appropriately titled electronic pop project — whose 2013 album Paracosm (Sub Pop) is full of lush, headphone-filling analog keyboards — arrives at the perfect time, with its beachy, low-key synthpop pairing precisely for the end of summer. "Chillwave" compatriot Small Black also performs. At 8 p.m. at House of Blues.
Sat. Sept. 13 | San Diego's Delta Spirit recorded the rousing folk/rock anthems for its eponymous 2012 album in a converted church in Woodstock, N.Y. Its fourth full-length, Into the Wide, arrives this week on Dualtone Records. EDJ opens at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
Mon. Sept. 15 | New Orleans' latest dreamy, shoegazing rock outfit Natural Blonde — blasting Deerhunter-esque Nuggets with big, psychedelic hooks and textured guitars — headlines a bill with Portland, Oregon garage psych-pop band Genders. Local alt-country quintet Gold & the Rush opens at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
