Geographer, Royal Bangs 

When: Fri., Nov. 15, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-10
California's Geographer draws a surprisingly clean line between Animal Collective and Radiohead, adding the drama of OK Computer to the overstuffed beats of Strawberry Jam. With radiant keyboards, affected cello and arching falsetto, they turn simple tunes into quixotic adventures. Openers and new labelmates Royal Bangs have seemed poised at the brink of fame for five years, with convoluted pop that practically claps your hands for you. Produced by Black Key Patrick Carney, their latest, Brass, mutes the tones, trims the layers and, ultimately, mitigates their hyperkinetic impact into a Dr. Dog-like trot. —Grayson Haver Currin
