Olivia Tremor Control
Idiosyncratic Electric Six psych-rockers the Olivia Tremor Control are back in a major way in 2011, with the announcement of a full-scale U.S. tour, as well as vinyl reissues of two celebrated but long out-of-print albums, Music from the Unrealized Film Script: Dusk at Cubist Castle and Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. 1. And the quirky quintet isn't stopping there, with plans for a new record that should see release at some point next year. For those fans who perhaps didn't get a chance to see them play live back in the '90s (or didn't see them enough), this show is sure to be filled with songs that range from surreal folk jams to experimental noise freak-outs, and everything else in between. You're not going to see anything quite like this anytime soon. The Music Tapes, led by Neutral Milk Hotel's Julian Koster, is a fitting opener, and well-worth showing up early for as well. 18+.
