Weekend Warrior, July 17 - 19

Weekend Warrior, July 17 - 19

Satellite Hearts convene at Ortlieb’s this evening to celebrate the release of their sophomore LP Desire Forces The Flow. While their debut album occupied a loud, raw and rugged garage space, the peeks into their latest work suggest a more polished pop sensibility. Those tasty stick-to-your-bones guitar riffs remain, but the spectrum of sound for the trio seems to have broadened. The best way to find out after all is to hear it live in the flesh. The thunderous up-tempo smash and grab blues rock of fellow locals Thee, Idea Men open the proceedings, while the multifaceted Virginia-based rock trio of The Dawn Drapes, which combines airy, stabilizing vocals with a heavier instrumental environment, will be sandwiched between the two.
