Peter Wolf Crier
After a brief foray into trio-land, local-boys-made-good Peter Wolf Crier are once again operating as a daring duo, pared back down to founding members Peter Pisano (vocals/guitar) and Brian Moen (drums/synthesizers). Erecting a surprisingly giant wall of sound for a two-piece, the band returns home briefly tonight fresh off a well-received overseas run that included a coveted slot at Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival. Recent performances have found the pair jamming out and deconstructing the prickly distorted folk-rock tunes on their dense sophomore album, Garden of Arms, so be prepared for delightful detours from PWC's recorded sound. In a nice nod to the working man, tonight's show kicks off early and features bargain-basement merchandise prices, with music starting sharply at 8:30 and all PWC CDs and shirts running just $7. With Prissy Clerks and the Blind Shake. 18+
