7/24: The Veils at the Beachland Ballroom

Posted By on Wed, Jul 22, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Bands sometimes sound like products of their environments. London-based the Veils — a foursome whose members hail from New Zealand, Germany and England — make dramatic, strange rock songs that seem elusive and inviting at the same time. Their third album, Sun Gangs, came out in April and is an engaging and emotionally compelling listen. Foreign Born, from California, play melodic indie-rock on their 2007 debut, On the Wing Now, and the recently released Person to Person. Their summery, folksy numbers are a perfect companion to the Veils’ moody rock. The show starts at 9 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124) with Faces on Film opening. Tickets: $10. — Emily Zemler
