Film School, Millionyoung 

When: Mon., Sept. 27, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

Though Film School's songs span the spectrum of their musical niche, there's nothing particularly innovative about them. The Bay Area quintet's revolving lineup (featuring only founding guitarist Greg Bertens and keyboardist Jason Ruck) employ a variety of textured neo-psych guises ranging from chunky distortion-drenched walls of sound to colorful surging tangles of fuzz-coated melody and shimmering dream pop drift. The latter's particularly noteworthy on their latest, Fission, thanks to bassist Lorelei Plotczyk's sweet, gentle vocals. The music is generally well executed and reasonably vibrant (though less so since guitarist Nyles Lannon's departure after 2006's eponymous second album) but sometimes a bit too polished and predictable. Millionyoung opens.—Chris Parker
