Event details

Philadelphia's the A-Sides have been kicking around for five years or so, but they seem to have hit their stride with a new Vagrant Records LP called "Silver Storm." The records' grandiose ballads and melodic rock numbers recall contemporaries like The Stills and Phantom Planet: bands that draw on a number of time-tested influences but retain their singularity. Tour mates Division Day dwell in similarly exploratory rock terrain, veering into hyper punk-funk (a la Dismemberment Plan), epic guitar jams (Built to Spill) and teetering math rock (Minus the Bear).
