Event details

OK, we're over the tap dancing thing now. Problem is, Tilly and the Wall's songs seem to have caught up with the novelty of a crooning cast of indie rockers being accompanied by a wood floor and a pair of steel-tipped shoes. The Bright Eyes-approved group's sophomore album "Bottoms of Barrels" features more tapping, more voices, more hand claps, more exuberance and more harmonies. It's a treat for the senses on par with a trip to Worlds of Fun, but minus the soggy vomit sloshing around your feet.Fourth of July's debut LP "Fourth of July on the Plains" has been garnering rave reviews from friends and fans alike, showcasing lead songwriter Brendan Hangauer's witty late-night lyricisms and the sharp musicianship of his six-piece band featuring harmony vocals from Adrianne Verhoeven (formerly of The Anniversary). Ranging from tuneful indie folk to jubilant lo-fi-in-hi-fi pop, "Fourth of July on the Plains" has the makeup of a breakout album for one of Lawrence's best bands.
