Pass Go and Counter Culture are teaming up to put on a pretty rad Thursday night show at the El Rio. Headlined by neo-soul/pop/rock outfit Bear Lincoln and featuring the electro-psychedelia of Heart Sweats along with garage rockers Zip Zilch Nada, the evening promises to be an eclectic mix of sonic entertainment. Here’s how I imagine it will go: Bear Lincoln’s gonna make you dance, Heart Sweats will make you question your perception of reality, and Zip Zilch Nada will make you smile painfully with lines like, “Looking out over the city / I see apartments I can’t afford / I can’t live where I was born” from their song “EUBOCC/Candlestick”. Ouch, too real. That’s probably why it hurts so good.
