Lilac Shadows, Invisible Hand, Borrowed Beams of Light

When: Fri., July 22, 10 p.m. 2011

Lilac Shadows' paisley world shimmers in waves of distortion, evoking stoned late nights swaying beneath the twinkle of city lights. While obviously informed by shoegaze, their psych-rock's not as creamy and overpowering, exploring a drier, more austere sound at times reminiscent of the Black Angels' arid swelter. Led by Sam Logan and Derek Torres, the band appears to be the sibling outgrowth of their band T0W3RS. The openers, Charlottesville's Invisible Hand, are crisper and crunchier, delivering a punchy garage rock/power pop sound high in ringing guitar clamor and sticky hooks. BBOL's nostalgic indie pop bounces with sunny '60s Cali-pop energy. —Chris Parker
