Eight Gigs: Eisley
Thu., Oct. 27, 8 p.m., Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub, $15-$18
It’s all in the family with the three-sister, one brother and one cousin five-piece Eisley, who formed in Texas circa 1997. The dreamy indie-pop band has made the rounds over the last few decades, opening up for Coldplay and Ron Sexsmith back in the early aughts, and weathering a number of personal and professional ups and downs chronicled most intimately in its 2011 release The Valley. The band is presently on tour ahead of dropping a new album, with the lead single “Defeatist” released in September. Fans of Rilo Kiley, Daughter and First Aid Kit will find much to love in the seasoned band. 2708 J Street, www.eisley.com.
