Kid, You'll Move Mountains; Sapiens; Pool of Frogs; Picture Books 

When: Fri., Jan. 2, 9 p.m. 2009
Price: $8
The Geneva quintet Kid, You’ll Move Mountains, which includes former members of Troubled Hubble and El Oso, has a firm grasp on the basic indie-pop formula—chiming guitars, slightly swoony male vocals, some keys floating around here and there. Fortunately they’re smart enough not to limit themselves to it: their new self-released CD, Loomings, is full of unexpected zigs and zags, like dizzy psychedelic production flourishes or the occasional chugging guitar, which implies that someone in the band has some Fugazi in their collection among all that Built to Spill. Add to that a high hooks-to-songs ratio and an assured, no-sweat performance, and you’ve got what’s easily the best rock album to come out of Geneva in a minute. This is a release party. The Sapiens, Pool of Frogs, and Picture Books open. —Miles Raymer
