Fur Coats, Wett Nurse, Sycamore Smith & the Gray Beast, Big Black Cloud 

When: Wed., May 8, 8 p.m. 2013
When old-fashioned rock 'n' roll meets laidback glam, hearts are won. Thanks to a judiciously sexy application of pianos and horns, the Fur Coats turn heads, and their single "Not Gonna Stop" is a naughty, gritty heart stopper. Syc Nurse is a split cassette from Marquette, Michigan-based bands Wett Nurse and Sycamore Smith and the Gray Beast. You'll know Wett Nurse by their nonstop punk-rock organ, the work of Anastasia Greer, and Matt Lynch's Eric Burdon-esque vocals. Meanwhile, if their Syc Nurse track "Shan-Tan-Titty Town" is any indication, Sycamore Smith and the Gray Beast play narrative-based guitar pop. The song seems to indicate a penchant for enunciation, satisfying melodies, and not taking themselves too seriously. Portland noise rockers Big Black Cloud are the heavy-hitting act to follow here (best of luck, Sycamore Smith). Stand-out bass and drum work bolsters very loud, very distorted guitars and dystopian lyrics. REBECCA WILSON
