Our Loved Ones

By: Laurie Gallardo

More musical discovery to be had tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St., featuring four performances by Texas-based bands. Seriously, this is the show you arrive early for to catch all the bands:

-An album you need on your must-listen list is Victim/Nonvictim Pt. 1 by Quin Galavis. Get it. Now. (The featured track on today’s AMM is “Our Loved Ones (I Don’t Know What I Actually Said).”) A masterful mind meld of all that is emotional, dark, upbeat, nebulous, unpredictable…in summary, transcendent.

-Please note that dynamic duo Welcome Center is actually from Dallas and Philadelphia. Apologies for the AMM error due to overenthusiastic nerding-out. Either way, this is a must-have electro-dance pop/post-punk aural adventure. Jesse Smith and Aaron Sternick totally own it on Is This All There Is?

-Following last year’s releases of dreamy melodic/rhythmic quantum quest single “Collapse,” and the lovely hazy-hued renditions of pop faves found on Camcorder Covers, electronic-pop outfit Emme celebrates with a (new) single release party.

-Do not shirk the quirk, fiend. Welcome to poppy, gritty, driven and driving – sometimes off a cliff, but you get back up, then do it again. Presenting garage/punk madness by Pollen Rx.

Doors at 8 p.m., music at 8:30 p.m. So very recommended.
