The Feelies 

When: Sat., Sept. 15, 8:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $18-20
Built around propulsive strumming, the elemental beats of two percussionists and Glenn Mercer's dour vocals, the sound of The Feelies is immediately identifiable. Since forming in the late '70s in small-town New Jersey, the fivesome has moved past the twitchiness and "perpetual nervousness" of their 1980 debut, the aptly named Crazy Rhythms, to a more pastoral sound emphasizing the simplicity of campfire chord patterns and soaring lead lines. They also double as the coolest cover band on the planet, as evidenced in Jonathan Demme's Something Wild, and they're sure to have their way with gems by Neil Young, R.E.M., Wire and/or the Velvet Underground—their biggest influence—when they light up the Cradle stage. —David Klein
