The Moderate, Titchener Sound Cage

When: Sat., Aug. 7, 10 p.m. 2010

Mixing '90s indie with a healthy dose of rustic classic rock, D.C.'s The Moderate has the goods to please a large swath of fans. Marrying the heady textures of Built To Spill and Modest Mouse to the lithe guitar play of Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers Band, the four-piece cultivates relaxing familiarity without resorting to the stale gimmicks typical of such revivalism. With a slacker rock mumble akin to Spill's Doug Martsch and a piercing drawl that's more like Hank Williams, singer Jim Dempsey carries out nervy soul-searching with magnetic country charm. Titchener Sound Cage opens. —Jordan Lawrence
