Blitzen Trapper, Fruit Bats, Pearly Gate Music 

When: Mon., Oct. 4, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $12-14

Though they had self-released three albums by the point people began to notice, it wasn't until 2007's Wild Mountain Nation that Oregon-based sextet Blitzen Trapper's ramshackle country-folk chicanery gained notable acclaim. The combination of Eric Earley's charmingly off-kilter writing and the affable fidelity at which they recorded their songs gave the album sizable buzz (and a Sub Pop recording contract). And while the '70s-flavored prog-pop grandeur of this year's Destroyer of the Void is light years away from those more modest days of strum-and-sing, their music's no less charming for it. With Fruit Bats and Pearly Gate Music. —David Raposa
