Deluxe is host to one of the great double-bills of the summer Saturday night. Indie pop legends Nada Surf, touring in support of their incredible new album, The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy, headline the show. The band has been putting out one outstanding album after another for around 20 years. Let Go, The Weight is a Gift, and Lucky are all records that, years later, stay in heavy rotation in my library.
Opening the show is Waters, led by former Port O’Brien front man Van Pierszalowski. Out in the Light, the band’s first album, is a powerhouse amalgam of hooks and fuzz. Nearly a year after it’s release, it still gets heavy play. Just try to forget songs like For the One, Abridge My Love, and Mickey Mantle after they’ve burrowed into your brain.
Tickets are available for the MOKB Presents show here. Gonna be a memorable one Indy, so Get Off Your Ass and Go!
