If you are like me (and a few million other folks) you spent the past day or so traveling back home from numerous Holiday celebrations. And what better way to burn off the 12 glasses of eggnog you drank and get back into the swing of city life then to catch a free show tomorrow night.
The eclectic five-piece create charming and infectious pop music while utilizing an array of instruments from synthesizers to banjos, ukuleles, and mandolins. An explosion of sound dissolves into earnest lyrics, creating some incredibly catchy multi-layered songs. Also the band compares their sound to "The Arcade Fire meets The Muppets," and anything remotely involving Muppets is alright in my book.
The Empty Bottle is at 1035 N. Western Ave. The show is free (hence Free Monday show) and also playing will be The Black Fortys and Soft Speaker.
