The Royalty coming to War Room 2/16



El Paso alt-rockers The Royalty are scheduled to feature in an excellent night of regional talent at War Room. Behind Nicole Boudreau's gorgeously soulful vocals, The Royalty makes R&B-infused indie-rock imbued with a distinguishing dream-pop quality. Their Victory Records debut Lovers should provide ample fodder for a rousing soul-penetrating set that defies expectations and investigates past musical modes through the tones of the future. Expect sophistication and boundless energy from a rising band that knows their instruments and plays to their strengths. Beaumont party rockers Purple will serve as something of a refreshing foil to the somber and emotionally charged performances you’re sure to get from not only The Royalty, but from celebrated local experimental pop-rock outfit We Leave at Midnight as well. 9PM, War Room, 2718 N St Mary's, (210) 735-7775. — James Courtney
