Tonight’s Concert Picks: Veronica Falls at Johnny Brenda’s, Obits with Creepoid at Underground Arts, Aaron and the Spell at The Tin Angel

VeronicaSlumberland / Bella Union artists Veronica Falls hit Johnny Brenda’s tonight.  The London-based four piece are indie pop born and bred, having come together after three members (two from Sexy Kids and one from Your Twenties) met at a Comet Gain show.  Now touring in support of their second full-length Waiting for Something to Happen, Veronica Falls got their start releasing gothy / punk-pop singles on Brooklyn’s Captured Tracks label.  The current LP, however, is much brighter sounding than the early efforts with a Pale Saints-esque shoegaze quality.  Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with Cold Showers and Juan Wauters can be found here.  Watch their video for “Teenage” off of Waiting below.

Call of the Wild: Cheatahs (playing Johnny Brenda’s 3/7)

Cheatahs, one of the best new acts emerging in London, have announced a US tour for this spring accompanying Veronica Falls. The four-piece punk outfit, which is the new project of ex-Weird Dreams member James Wignall, have yet to release a full-length album, but their two 2012 EPs made waves this summer. The title track from their Coared EP, which you can stream here, has a nostalgic fuzzpop vibe that’ll leave you wanting more beyond the album’s four tracks. Grab tickets to their March show at Johnny Brenda’s here, and below you can watch the watercolor inspired video for “Swans,” the first single from their new Sans EP.
