After a week spent listening to psychedelic rock n’ roll, I needed something to cleanse the spirits. I just wanted something refreshing and fun, something to get me back into the mood for a relaxing week, and Allo’ Darlin and the Wave Pictures definitely helped me out.
Read on for thoughts on all the night’s acts and sweet photos from B. Gray.

Those of you who are in any way fans of great indie pop need to be sure you’re in attendance at this excellent show on Tuesday evening. Allo Darlin and the Wave Pictures are two of the best UK indie pop acts, and they rarely make it all the way over to our side of the pond. All Darlin just released their latest record, Europe, and the Wave Pictures put out Long Black Cars in the past month as well. All you need to do is spend five minutes listening to each band and you’ll know that your attendance is necessary. Opening the night is No Future, the new reincarnation of the band formerly known (and loved) as Leatherbag.
