Moondoggies, Miles Nielsen, Tacoma Narrows The List (Music) Soundboard

When: Wed., Nov. 10, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $10, $8 in advance
On its second album, Tidelands (Hardly Art), this shaggy Seattle quartet wears its heart on its sleeve: the Moondoggies' strummy, organ-stoked rock is clearly inspired by earnest 70s songwriters like Neil Young and John Fogerty, and singer-guitarist Kevin Murphy sounds like he's channeling Tom Petty at his most prosaic. What makes these guys memorable (aside from their unfortunate name) are the sweet, precisely arranged vocal harmonies, which turn their music into more than just mildly rootsy, meat-and-potatoes retro rock—they've got more in common with contemporaries like Animal Collective or Fleet Foxes. Miles Nielsen and Tacoma Narrows open. —Peter Margasak
