The Interest Group

New Track: "Soul Kiss (For Allies To Be)" - The Interest Group

Interlocking bass and guitar dance ahead, developing a streamlined search-party sound on The Interest Group’s new single, “Soul Kiss (For Allies To Be). Punctuated by pummeling percussion, the wafting vocal harmonies combine with Marissa Lesnick’s ethereal lead vocals to alleviate the instrumental tension. While the pressure seemingly diffuses as the song concludes, its psych-pop draw of intensity/ease will certainly leave a lasting impression.

Cure Your Monday Blues w/Lantern & The Interest Group at Bourbon & Branch June 2

So, Mondays can be a real drag, but Bourbon & Branch might have that doctor recommended musical remedy with its lineup this evening. With their seductively sleazy, retro-rockin', guitar-heavy, locomotive-style selections, Lantern will knock you out of that new-week stupor, sweating layers of grit and grim, while laying down blazing guitar lines and remaining accessible in that T-Rex tradition. Speaking of accessible, the multi-genre, melodic, psych experience of The Interest Group will also be providing a much-needed dose of male-female vocals, serving as a calming force with their ironed-out, crisp compositions. Midwesterners State Champion round out the bill in NoLibs newest music venue. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The Interest Group Opening for Luke Temple at The Boot & Saddle Nov. 8

The Boot & Saddle sure is trying to get on my good side, and I think it’s working. Tonight catch retro pop rockers The Interest Group channel their 60’s-era spirit animals. Smooth female vocals and classic lyrics give these vaguely psychedelic songs a warm and fuzzy twist, and the band’s two wonderful August singles (aptly released on 7”) will undoubtedly transport you to another time and place. Headlining the night will be the Boston-bred falsetto aficionado, Luke Temple, who also fronts NYC’s Here We Go Magic. Rolling off of the release of his new 80’s-pop-inspired album Good Mood Fool, the show is sure to put you in a good mood. Get it? Sorry, I like telling bad jokes too. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Maggie Grabmeier
