Gringo Star 

When: Tue., Nov. 15, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $6

Atlanta's Gringo Star shows great affection for the '60s, with British Invasion guitar tones cadged from the Hollies, swells of ringing guitars like the Byrds and fuzzed-out bursts of paisley psych. But their music's also bolstered by modern power pop flair. The result is somewhat woolly but well-crafted, insidiously catchy music that doesn't feel nostalgic so much as properly reverent. There are traces of The Walkmen in the barroom suaveness of these organ-driven rockers, and few acts fashion melodies this effortlessly irresistible. They're supporting their terrific second album, Count Yer Lucky Stars.—Chris Parker
