When: Sat., Nov. 4, 9 p.m.-2 a.m. 2017
Here’s a stacked local bill of four acts keeping the dystopian dream of alternative rock alive in their own ways. Granite Hands, for starters, is an instrumental math-rock outfit that incorporates elements of jazz fusion, progressive rock, and psychedelic rock into its satisfyingly knotty music. Cliffside of the Pinkeyed Sky, aside from boasting one of the best band names in town, impressed us with the summer release of its Spacetime EP, which presents a trippy and experimental progressive rock sound. The other two bands on this swell bill are Donella Drive and Celeste’al Descent, which play funky/punk-y alt-rock with a pop digestibility and straightforward, KISS FM-ready alternative respectively. A quick Bandcamp search for any of these bands will help you get familiar with their overlapping but distinct sounds before Saturday’s show.
