We here at XPN are really into the new Car Seat Headset record — his first for Matador Records — and the man behind the music, Will Toledo of Seattle reminds a lot of our own Alex G. who, like Toledo, made a name himself by releasing an insane amount of self-released work (11 for Toledo and 13 for Alex G.) They also are now both fresh off big label debuts, and you can catch Toledo play songs from intricate, interesting and overall awesome new album, Teens of Style tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. For more information on the show click here.

Darwin Deez’s style of idiosyncratic pop is one that is that is constantly in flux, as is evidence by his inventive 2015 LP. Double Down. Tonight Deez brings this eclectic sound to Boot & Saddle alongside Charlie Bliss. For more information or to score tickets to tonights show head to the XPN Concert Calendar.

Deerhunter’s slow build culminated in the release of 2010’s Halycon Digest, an album which fully signaled their arrival on the indie-rock scene. In 2015 Deerhunter continued this string of success with the critically-acclaimed Fading Frontier which builds on their ambient punk sound. You can hear them tonight at Union Transfer with Atlas Sound; for information and tickets to tonight’s show, click here.
