This is a past event.
When: Thu., Aug. 12, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

Aminal's "BRCC" begins gently, with acoustic guitar miniatures that soon grow into an infectious, '70s power pop stomp. Warm organ textures, fuzz-encrusted guitar, the tomcat strut of Cameron Weeks' drumming and Joe Caparo's soulful bass bravado define this lament—a fine specimen of evolved Southern pop rock. Patrick O'Neill launches into a frustrated list of "I feel" statements, all plainly put and poignant. It's not hard to picture him, one too many drinks deep in a Franklin Street bar, contemplating his own mortality. "No one else can see me," he insists as the song gains momentum. "BRCC" possesses the off-the-cuff honesty of a barstool sermon. "And I feel like I should go on home," O'Neill wails at one point. Aminal's music is familiar and winning. The 10 p.m. show is free. Butterflies open. —Corbie Hill
