New York band The Wrecks is bringing its unique brand of alternative rock to the 40 Watt Club. Guitarist Nick Anderson, upon realizing the lack of a music scene in his rural New York town, decided to assemble a band through the internet. The band’s aesthetic is somewhere between ‘90s alt rock and early 2000’s pop. Their music videos are charming, homespun creations with a fair amount of comedy. Sonically, their music is anthemic and sharply produced. Opening for The Wrecks will be Arlie. Arlie reaches deep back into 2000’s indie and electronic music, touching on sounds reminiscent of MGMT and M83, while still remaining in the present day. This is more of a double header than a headliner-opener scenario, with two huge up-and-coming indie bands. Tickets are $23 for general admission or $72 for the VIP pass, which includes a pre-show meet and greet, photo opportunity and a signed tour poster.
