Mountain Sounds, Valise, Golden Retriever, Billygoat 

When: Thu., Nov. 21, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $5-7
Though Mountain Sounds released its first album in March, tonight is the first time the band has been able to play a show here in the hometown of founding member Tim Hoyt. The delay has been a bureaucratic one: The other half of the group, Franc Castillejos, lives in the heart of Guatemala, and visas to visit the US are harder than ever to secure. The wait will be worth it, though, as the band's self-titled debut is a delight of finely honed pop informed by the likes of Ben Folds and Jason Mraz. The juxtaposition between that and the expansive drones of bass clarinet/modular synth duo Golden Retriever should make for a head-spinning evening. ROBERT HAM
