As always, the Triangle provides us with some great concerts this week. You can check out the full round-up over at the Rock Report. The standout show for this week features local singer/songwriter Brett Harris as well as two up and coming indie pop-rock bands out of DC. Brett Harris has become something of a local master of pop. He began his career by releasing a batch of EPs and touring heavily. His debut album Man of Few Words was released in 2010 and made its rounds through various music blogs. After some time off since its release, he is back at it again.
But the main highlight of this show are the bands making their way down from DC. Young Rapids released their debut album Day Light Savings last year. The album received quite a bit of praise from all around including some love from NPR’s All Songs Considered as their infectious breed of perfectly crafted indie pop-rock took hold. Their music is a very smartly composed and driven of indie rock that is sure to get you going. With them they bring an even newer band out of DC, Paperhaus. Paperhaus is a band in much of the same vain with a bit more of a psychedelic influence. Their new song “Helicopters” off their upcoming EP, Lo Hi Lo, was recently featured on NPR. While love for music from DC is to expected from NPR, this DC duo of bands have received a stamp of approval from the rest of the country as well as their two-month nationwide tour approaches its end. So be sure to stop by the Motorco this Tuesday for a great time. Who can say no to a free show?
