Fri 6/5
Ben Kweller


If there is such a thing as a prototypical indie rock vibe, Ben Kweller is a good representative. A little punk, a tad alt-rock, low on production fuss, high on first-person emotion and individualism, Kweller’s sound, exemplified by his 13-plus releases in the last 15 years, is pure indie golden era. His surprisingly dynamic slacker rock, sharp in its own insular way after all these years, continues to defy trends and fads. In fact, 2012’s Go Fly a Kite, his most recent recorded effort, is one of his strongest albums yet.
