Click to listen to our feature episode on Love is Chemicals!
Love is Chemicals is emerging from the studio, where they’ve been putting the final touches on their follow-up to 2005’s self-titled album, to showcase some of their new material before heading up to the Seattle area to play a cluster of shows. Channeling the spirit of such 90s indie icons as Yo La Tengo and Built to Spill, Love is Chemicals features top shelf songwriting, male/female harmonies and just the right ratio of angry to blissful guitar runs. The Passionistas and Spark and Decay will also be on hand. Show begins at 9:30, $6, 21+.
Across town at the Bottom of the Hill, Form and Fate will alternately jolt and lull its loyal followers with its layerings of epic post-rock and contemplative melodies. Form and Fate’s new CD, The Form and Fate of Lakes, will be released on April 10 on Three Ring Records. F&F will lead a bill of equally venerable local acts, including We Be the Echo, Zero Mass and Aim Low Kid. Show begins at 8:30pm, $8, all ages.
