Sun., March 24, Caveman
Blue Lamp, 8 p.m., $10-$12
Caveman, a five-piece indie-pop band from New York City's Brooklyn borough, will release a self-titled album on April 2. The first single, “In the City,” is anthemic with four-part harmonies, psychedelic keys and muddled guitars. This song alone illustrates Caveman's willingness to experiment with different sounds. Still, the group isn't straying too far from its debut album CoCo Beware, where singles like “Old Friend” with chunky guitar riffs and catchy drum beats gained the band buzz back in 2011. Caveman creates relaxed rock or calming sounds that are easy listening, but not boring or dull. It's definitely a band for those who enjoy the dreamier qualities of music. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, www.cavemantheband.comtalics.
