The past five months have been good to Atlanta "alternative" (read: just a little emo) rock band Manchester Orchestra, given the rather rampant success of their third full-length, Simple Math. Curiously enough, Simple Math is a concept album rooted in autobiography, with lead singer Andy Hull paring down his life story from a bramble maze of 100 tracks to a mere 10. If nothing else, Hull's songwriting has reached its evocative peak, and the band as a whole is fully capable of lifting those impassioned songs right off the page. Joining Manchester Orchestra on this rather massive tour is Austin's White Denim, whose recent EP, Takes Place in Your Work Space, is brimming with catchy, circuitous guitar riffs and the kind of Texas charm you can only find in the state's heathen city.
