Manchester Orchestra, The Features, Biffy Clyro, O'Brother

When: Wed., April 7, 7 p.m. 2010

Hull looks like if he didn't channel all his energy into making music he'd be penning manifestos in a remote cabin near Lincoln, Mt. He doesn't need acid, though—his mind's already that wired. His music's big and unwieldy, full of anxious untempered passion that's, at best, barely restrained. The grandiosity and swelling, shape-shifting sound frequently suggest early Flaming Lips. It's perhaps at times overweening, but it never feels too calculated. Hull's loose, uncensored, unaffected unconventionality makes Manchester Orchestra a much more joyous, entertaining hang than the White Rabbits, who we'd introduce to our friends, but never invite in for late-night beers like Manchester Orchestra. With The Features, Biffy Clyro and O'Brother. —Chris Parker
