In their native UK, Gomez are Mercury Prize-winning crowd-pleasers, but despite a decade of trying—including a high-profile signing to Dave Matthews' record label and splashy opening gigs for Pearl Jam—the band's quest for mainstream US stardom remains elusive. Tonight, Gomez bring their reliably melodic indie-rock to the Wonder, along with LA-based openers Buddy, another band that traffics in the kind of songs that sound right at home scoring emotional moments of Grey's Anatomy.
