Maps & Atlases
Over the course of their two full-lengths and numerous EPs, the Chicago quartet Maps & Atlases have crafted an intricate, textured experimentalism that hovers comfortably between art pop and expansive, angular rock 'n' roll. Their inventive new album, Beware and Be Grateful, is a more accessible collection of songs, while still maintaining a buoyant, creative edge. Maps & Atlases' absorbing live shows consistently showcase the dexterous talents of all four members, who smoothly blend each of their distinct, ambitious sounds to further each song's unconventional aims and directions. This show represents one of the bigger national indie-rock bookings for Amsterdam, which should provide the perfect room. With the Big Sleep and Suns. 18+
