Arkells are back for yet another show in WNY at tonight's installment of Thursday At The Harbor. And if that sounds like a negative, it's really not. Their headlining show at the Town Ballroom's "All Canada Night" in February was sharp, energetic, and fun; they opened for The Maine a few months back at Club Infinity, and now they're back to finish the job and win over yet more local music fans with their smart and satisfying power pop.
For a nice twist tonight's night of free music will feature a co-headliner in the form of Gomez. Fans of musical geography will note that Gomez hails from Southport in the county of Merseyside, 16.5 miles from Liverpool; and fans of indie rock will note that their tasteful harmonies and tuneful Spoon-like rock go down easy. Opening duties will be handled by Toronto's very own Elliot Brood, and the show starts at 6 PM.
