Fan Modine, Aminal, Wages 

When: Thu., July 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $7

Fan Modine's Gratitude for the Shipper is a very twee affair, though it doesn't sacrifice depth for lightness. With two-dozen local musicians listed in the credits and orchestral arrangements on some tracks, this Gordon Zacharias-led project suggests Okkervil River trading their acoustics for synths. In fact, Gratitude makes a fine companion piece to Okkervil's The Stand Ins. "Meet Me at the End of the Line" bounces optimistically along, contrasting urban bustle with the basic pleasures of a rainy day at the beach. Though many bands pull the happy music/dark lyrics disconnect, Fan Modine's approach is literate and sarcastic. With Aminal and Wages. —Corbie Hill
