Tonight: The Receiver

Tonight is one of the most stacked bills I’ve seen in awhile as four completely terrific take the stage at Nietzsche’s tonight.

Kicking off things is local electro-pop artist, Space Cubs. Knowing little to nothing about her, I saw her open for Majical Cloudz a couple years ago at the Tralf and was absolutely blown away. Her fairly expansive music means at times her work sounds reminiscent of everyone from Portishead to Neon Indian. Either way, this songstress creates an utterly enchanting show.

Following that is Humble Braggers who are fresh off the release of their supremely impressive Disposable Friends EP. The band’s modern synth-rock sound is immediately infectious and there’s no doubt they’s put on a truly thrilling show.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Hailing from Columbus OH, sibling indie pop duo The Reciever will bring their lush dreamy sounds to Allentown. Fresh off the release of its latest, All Burn, the duo’s music is reminiscent of recent proggy dream pop acts like Mew and Blonde Redhead and is as gorgeous as it is wildly inventive.

Finally, long-time local experimental rockers Lazlo Hollyfeld will cap the night. The Buffalo band has spent the last decade making a name for themselves with their soaring instrumental sounds along with some memorable SXSW appearances. The band is currently working on its latest album and attendees can expect a lot of fresh original material from this always original group.

Doors at Nietzsche’s are at 9pm and cover is only $5.
