Americans in France are a hard-partying, gasoline-chugging, indie rock band that really doesn't sound French in the least. The coed group from Chapel Hill, N.C., plays a fuzzy, distorted brand of noise rock that's not far off from Lawrence bands like Blood on the Wall or Rooftop Vigilantes. Speaking of which... 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 multiple tours of late, the group has met every challenge with a raised shot glass and a grammatically challenged song title (i.e. “Charley Want Mario Chalmers”). Check out our podcast interview with the band.
