THE SHUT-UPS This long-running, guitar-driven new wave band’s Kaufmanesque live presentation showcases the sharp-tongued lyrics of keyboardist/frontman Don Condescending, guitarists Ben Spraker and Jason NeSmith, bassist Thad Thompson and former Flagpole Music Editor Ballard Lesemann on drums.
NORMALTOWN SOUND MACHINE Featuring members of Ceiling Fan, Salt Flats and Still, Small Voice & the Joyful Noise, NSM’s asymmetrical compositions are bracing yet melodic, drawing inspiration from LCD Soundsystem, Herbie Hancock, ESG, Cardigans and Stereolab.
THE WYDELLES Frontman and songwriter Bo Bedingfield has been a tall and quiet fixture in the local music scene since the early 2000s. Joining Bo in the Wydelles are Brandon Reynolds on bass, John Neff on guitar, Neil Golden on keys and Matt Lane on drums.
