Eight Gigs: Slaves

Sat., April 9, 6 p.m., The Boardwalk, $13-$15

Even if you don’t know Slaves’ music, you know Slaves’ music; the band is Sacto’s very own supergroup, comprised of vocalist Jonny Craig of Dance Gavin Dance and bassist Colin Viera of Musical Charis, plus members of some post-hardcore bands of note like Four Letter Lie. Fans of Craig’s soaring vocals will continue to find much to enjoy, and the band is gaining traction in a serious way from the success of tracks like “My Soul is Empty and Full of White Girls.” The band is currently headlining its national “Us Against the World” tour. 9426 Greenback Lane, www.facebook.com/officialslaves.
