Thursday, August 13
Mirror Kisses, Tides., Calico Club

Performing as Mirror Kisses, New Yorker George Clanton produces 4 a.m. bangers, with enough beat for the molly-heads to vibe to and enough texture for your suburban cousin to fall asleep to. In the spirit of Washed Out, Beach House and the host of other modern acts contained in the dream pop aesthetic into which Tides comfortably slides, there’s a subtle undercurrent to their music (gentle at first) that draws you in closer. And like those acts, the trick lies in making the complex sound simple. Like Iggy Pop’s “Nightclubbing” or anything Grace Jones ever touched, Calico Club’s Permanent Night is a record about the bar as not only a lifestyle but a creative opportunity: the chance to perform in posture, dress and dance even if you’re not onstage. With Children of Pop. $8, 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.
