Great Peacock w/Belle Adair & Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles 

When: Sat., Aug. 2, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $7
The ’Bama-bred Belle Adair employs a cool and breezy approach to Southern rock. The Muscle Shoals band takes the soulful sound their city’s known for and cloaks it in airy textures, referencing unlikely influences like Tim Hecker and Stars on the Lid. The twang is there, but the edges are smoothed with a dream-pop moodiness that splits the difference between early Wilco and recent War on Drugs — roots rock that’s more chin-strokin’ than boot-stompin’. It’s not necessarily a novel approach — you’ve heard it plenty times before — but their full-length debut, The Brave and the Blue, stitches it all together while doing a pretty good job of covering up the seams. Also on the bill are Great Peacock and Erin Rae. MATT SULLIVAN
