PLASTIC CACTUS Courtesy of the artist

Sound + Vision is the FREE monthly concert series the Mercury hosts with Banana Stand Media and Mississippi Studios. November's show had some country twang, thanks to the Lonesome Billies—a western outfit that really does feature four Bills—and Plastic Cactus, whose debut EP, Pricks, was one of my favorite local releases of this year. Check out Banana Stand's videos from the show!

Don't miss the next Sound + Vision concert—it's next Tuesday at Mississippi Studios, featuring the danceable electro-pop of Frankie Simone and the ultramarine visions of Siren and the Sea!
