Last Year's Men, Daytona 

When: Fri., March 15, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: $6

On the Bandcamp page for Storm So Long, the year-old EP from Brooklyn rock trio Daytona, the band lists a few very basic data tags, followed by this plea: "Don't pigeonhole us pleeeeeeease." Fair enough, as Daytona's music jangles and jaunts somewhere between psychedelic drift and garage crunch, with moments of near-post-rock shimmer sidled beside power-pop zest. They're a fun group that's not vapid, a somewhat simple band that's not silly. Better, Daytona? Last Year's Men require little area introduction, but for good measure, they are a truly excellent and young group that's outgrowing the mere garage-rock confines of their debut LP. With a Greg Cartwright-helmed album imminent, this year should be better than last year for 'em.—Grayson Currin
