Led by the inimitable Raul Malo, The Mavericks brought their new LP Brand New Day to a packed downstairs crowd at World Cafe Live on the second night of NonCOMM. It was a set of Latin-influenced big-band country, a brief escape from the skyscrapers and construction to open roads and dusty towns.
Eternal Summers start off the show tonight at Union Transfer. The Virginia trio continues to tour in support of its 2012 LP Correct Behaviour, although a new album may be in the works judging by the fact that the shoegazey punk band played several unreleased songs last time they were in Philly. Despite their carefree name, Eternal Summers ventured into some darker waters on Behaviour with vocalist / guitarist Nicole Yun’s scratchy guitar riffs and drummer Daniel Cundiff’s manic beat-keeping, though Yun’s airy vocals keep things untethered on most tracks. Tickets and information for their set tonight with The Presidents of The United States of America and You Scream I Scream can be found here. Below, watch Eternal Summers perform “You Kill” live at MACRoCk 2012.
