Radar Eyes, 2012


People's Temple, Radar Eyes, Outer Minds 

When: Thu., Feb. 6, 9 p.m. 2014
Radar Eyes are definitely more pop than punk, but despite the candylike hooks the music hasn't totally shaken the grimness it was supposed to ward off. The contrast between the two is probably more powerful than either alone could ever be. —Miles Raymer, 2010

What makes Outer Minds distinctive are the delightful Mamas & the Papas-style vocal harmonies of guitarist Zach Medearis, keyboardist Mary McKane, and tambourine whacker Gina Lira, which imbue the band's grotty Nuggets punk (bashed out by Medearis, bassist Aaron "A-Ron" Orlowski, and drummer Brian Costello, who's also a Reader contributor) with an incongruously sunny Technicolor vibe. —Peter Margasak, 2012
