River City Ransom, Dark Water Rising, King's English 

When: Thu., Dec. 22, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

River City Ransom attack an America that resembles that of Bruce Springsteen with a stylish post-rock disdain that's more indebted to The Clash. Piano clangs with abandon as guitars chug along in crushing, distorted blasts, pairing nicely with songs that are sometimes redemptive, sometimes damning. The numbers don't always find their mark, but when they do, these songs leave one. The King's English opens with ragged back-porch jams that hit somewhere between patient folk-rock and energetic bluegrass. Rhythms run wild, but harmonies burst through clearly. It's an honest if somewhat uneven take on a sound that never really gets old. With Dark Water Rising. —Jordan Lawrence
