The Hunting Accident, System & Station 

When: Tue., Aug. 2, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $6
Arlo were a staple of Sub Pop in the tumultuous days of the early '00s, when the seminal label seemed on the verge of extinction, a flannel-clad fossil that never got past its illustrious past. That changed, of course, when the Postal Service and the Shins built them an office made entirely out of gold records and returned the imprint to greatness, but during Sub Pop's resurrection the power-popsters in Arlo were lost in the shuffle. Following their split, frontman Nate Greely teamed with half of Piebald (yet another underappreciated act from the same time period) and drummer Pete Beeman (Burning Brides) to form the Hunting Accident. Still possessing that new band smell, the Hunting Accident have a four-song 7-inch debut queued for release later this month and a streamlined—yet not overtly polished—rock and roll sound that stays true to their former bands, no matter how overlooked they just might have been.
