Sleepy Sun headlines the Independent Friday night (9pm, $14), supported by an equally anticipated act, The Antlers(NYC) and Misty Mountain from Felton, CA.

The Antlers are a three-piece out of Brooklyn, and their record Hospice went first as a self-release until picked up by French Kiss earlier this year. Love from All Songs Considered (NPR), Pitchfork and Stereogum soon followed. “Bear” is a great representative sample of Hospice, which in itself is half ambient, half a dance number. The more rhythm-lacking measures are stabilized by high-energy parts that retreat back to a more familiar indie rock sound.
