When: Fri., Dec. 12, 9 p.m. 2014
Mike Chapa, a veteran of the SA music scene, has got a new bag. With his latest project, Saarinens, he’s brewing up emotionally charged and earnest indie rock of the power-pop-tilted variety. With their debut album basically finished, Saarinens are looking forward to a spring release date and trying out some new tunes on you this Friday. Rounding out the bill are San Anto transplant Lucas Oswald, who creates gorgeous piano-pop ornately adorned with his positively dreamy falsetto, and ATX’s The Baffles, who make vampy and driving, sun-soaked spy-surf with psychedelic flourishes.
