The Moondoggies, Rose Windows, Mercators

When: Sun., Oct. 20, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Tourmates The Moondoggies and Rose Windows share a few obvious features: They both hail from Seattle, they've both released new LPs this year, and they both belong to the extended Sub Pop Records family. More important, though, is the way that both acts fold their influences and moods into oblong songs and atmospheres. The Sun Dogs, the stellar debut from Rose Windows, transmogrifies from ripping guitar rock that recalls Sabbath to harrowing folk sing-alongs more akin to Buffy Sainte-Marie, moves made possible by enchanting singer Rabia Shaheen Qazi and a high-minded approach to dynamics. The Moondoggies, meanwhile, combine the shambling sounds of The Band against the live-wire energy of post-punk. Not unlike the former North Carolinians of Roman Candle, they're a classic rock band with fresh verve—neither nave nor kowtowing, just erudite and enthused. —Grayson Currin
