Wombats, Mates, and Riots, oh my!
Grab your best ladyfriend and free up your nights next week, because we’ve got 3 back-to-back nights of fantastic indie shows you won’t want to miss (ALL 3 SHOWS ARE $20 OR LESS, FEES INCLUDED)! Think of it as an indie showcase–you’ll end up being the one who introduces your friends to the best new music in the indie world.
Tuesday, November 1: The Wombats w/The Postelles and Static Jacks [TICKETS]
The Wombats’ third full-length record This Modern Glitch was released this year in April, peaking at #3 on the UK Album Charts, with FOUR of the tracks also gracing the UK Singles Charts–this UK indie-pop group is in their prime. Their colorful indie-pop songs are splattered with youthful sentiments and dance parties. If you’re into Los Campesinos!, Noah And The Whale, or Driver F, you NEED to be at this show.
Wednesday, November 2: Mates of State w/Generationals and Smile Smile [TICKETS]
Barsuk veterans Mates of State have been dubbed America’s favorite husband/wife indie duo, releasing drum/keyboard-driven pop gems for over 14 years. Mates of State’s sound continues to evolve, which is a hard feat considering there are only two members. Their live shows are energetic, fun, and great for dates.
New Orleans natives Generationals are indie rock’s next southern superheroes who conjure up songs worthy of your next road trip playlist. They go on stage before MoS. Check out the video to their hit “Ten-Twenty-Ten” right here.
Smile Smile are Dallas’ own indie-pop duo, producing sweet-sounding songs dense with love, buried emotions, and heartbreak. They open up the show @ 8pm. Watch their Dallas-filmed video for “Truth On Tape” here.
Thursday, November 3: Ra Ra Riot w/Delicate Steve and Yellow Ostrich [TICKETS]
Ra Ra Riot (also on Barsuk) always play a great show at Granada, gracing our theater with their string-laden indie pop that makes for a beautifully memorable night. Their 2010 sophomore effort The Orchard earned them credibility and a slew of good reviews, along with their single “Boy” appearing in recent movies, commercials and television shows.
Mathy and melodic, you’re going to love Delicate Steve. They go on before RRR. Listen here.
Yellow Ostrich has a very unique style of subtle indie rock, but have been highly praised for their live performances. They open up the show @ 8pm. Check out their song “Whale” here.
Come to Granada hungry and get some of our pizza while it’s hot (BEFORE it gets cool, you hipster).
