Downtown Festival Cleveland: The War on Drugs/Califone 

When: Fri., Sept. 19, 8 p.m. 2014
There’s something simultaneously introspective and anthemic about the War on Drugs’ most recent album, Lost in the Dream. At every point in the album, the band toes the line between the ontological and the physical. “I was able to unlock the magic for each song,” frontman Adam Granduciel told Scene earlier this year. “And it’s definitely a lot looser; we’re not locked into a lot of drum machine stuff for the songs on this record. They’re just becoming a little bit bigger, a little livelier.” The last time the band came to Cleveland, they played the storied Grog Shop, and the room’s size constraints were palpable. This time, they’ll be opening up their sound at the House of Blues downtown, letting all that unlocked magic flow a little more freely. (Eric Sandy)
