United We Brunch is coming back in April. Tickets are on sale right now!

On their debut album, Carnavas, Los Angeles' Silversun Pickups recall '90s shoegazers such as My Bloody Valentine. Fuzzy guitars, hazy vocals, and melodies that float miles above the atmosphere collide in a cloud of ambient indie rock, grounded in the celebration of such earthly joys as sex and drugs. On "Little Lover's So Polite," singer Brian Aubert meshes with bassist Nikki Monninger for a Pixies-like slice of proto-grunge, while "Well Thought Out Twinkles" cops its vocal snarls and guitar blur from the Smashing Pumpkins.
Wed., Oct. 18, 9:30 p.m.
