Sat, April 2, A Lot Like Birds
A Lot Like Birds will be bringing head-nodding, mosh-pit-starting music to Ace of Spades, playing alongside Green Audio, Twenty Days with Julian, Ember Beside Us and the Astral Effect. This local seven-piece released its post-hardcore debut Plan B in 2009, and ever since then, has built up a following and taken flight. Winners of the 2010 Sammies, A Lot Like Birds proves that dissonant sounds, screamo vocals and catchy guitar melodies can create an unusual harmony. Besides, the band’s onstage antics will keep you entertained, and the guys actually know what the hell they’re doing. 1417 R Street, www.myspace.com/alotlikebirds.
