Lord Huron, Night Moves 

When: Mon., Oct. 22, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12
You mean to tell me Lord Huron isn't from the Pacific Northwest? Bandleader Ben Schneider actually makes his home in Los Angeles, after moving there from North Michigan a couple years back. Makes sense. Lord Huron's music recalls some of the chamber-pop folkiness that our fair city likes to dress up for, but there's also more of an eccentric bent to it that screams LA. Never mind the fact that Schneider likes to be referred to as "Lord" in interviews; his music contains ghostly choruses, occasional electronic flourishes, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms (at least on 2010's Mighty EP) that pull it out of Dust Bowl predictability. Basically, there are a lot of great moments in Lord Huron's otherwise unchallenging tunes. Sometimes that's all folks need. MARK LORE
