Rooftop Vigilantes' high-energy blend of blitzkrieg pop and complete drunken chaos makes for a solid night of entertainment. From the Vigilantes’ soused beginnings to their upcoming six-week tour, the group has met every challenge with a raised shot glass and a grammatically challenged song title (i.e. “Charley Want Mario Chalmers”). With a little bit of luck, they'll have copies of their new album "Carrot Atlas" at tonight's show.
Channeling the glory days of early-'90s guitar rock, The Dactyls employ alternate tunings and inverted phrasings to create densely textured, off-kilter indie rock songs. The group recently released a 7-inch called "A Widow Knows" and aims to unveil more sonic awesomeness in 2009.
