A stellar trio of local acts are poised to take over the Mainroom at First Avenue, as arty area songwriter Jeremy Messersmith (pictured), burgeoning psych-pop outfit Night Moves, and the melodic dream-pop of Greycoats form a stirring triple-bill. Messersmith is still riding the waves of adulation that followed the release of 2010's The Reluctant Graveyard, and his live show has only grown more impassioned and intoxicating over the years, no matter how he tinkers or tweaks arrangements. Night Moves have just put the finishing touches on their long-awaited debut for Domino Records, and this show should serve to highlight their absorbing songs while building on their local fan base, while Greycoats will complement the others with an opening set sure to feature songs from their excellent new EP, Helicline. 18+.
