Restorations Leaving Their Imprint at The Barbary April 8

Restorations Leaving Their Imprint at The Barbary April 8

Maybe it's because I am child of the '90s that I heart Restorations so much. Unlike most of the crap put in the mainstream, this is one local outfit that wraps itself so tightly around the passionate, bleeding heart melodies of the yesteryear's indie rock - the overwhelming seduction of shoegaze interrogations, the breathless melancholy of campus rock beer stains, the ballsy behavior of reckless post-punk, and the story-telling missives of modern Americana. It's sonic nostalgia that never seems out-dated. In every daring chord, in every dusky intone, in every pleading rhythm, there is Restorations' imprint. And tonight at The Barbary, it will pair perfectly with Kite Party's beating heart alt-rock and End of a Year Self Defense Family's rusty New York post-hardcore shrills. Yup, that's the stuff. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 7:30pm, $10, All Ages - Annamarya Scaccia
