Naked Gods, Invisible Hand

When: Sat., June 26, 10 p.m. 2010

The word "tight" is often used positively to describe a band's performance, indicating the players were particularly in sync with each other and the songs were delivered exactly as written. But loose seems the most appropriate mutual descriptor for Boone's Naked Gods and Virginia's Invisible Hand. This isn't to say the bands aren't tight, only that they don't aim for sterile precision. The buzzing psychedelic pop of Invisible Hand—like Talking Heads flexing Kinks songs—seems liable to burst into flames. Naked Gods' group-hug American rock—as if Don McLean fathered Akron/Family—could unravel with the right tug. Also, Order. —Bryan Reed
