Local indie rockers Great Northern -- whose tracks, including semi-hit "Home" (heard in a Nissan commercial) have frequently made Franklin Avenue's Choice Cuts compilations -- plays tonight at Pershing Square for FREE.
The concert, part of Spaceland's Under the Stars weekly series at Pershing Square, takes place at 7 p.m.
Not familiar with Great Northern? Here's their quick bio:
Frequently compared to everyone from Stevie Nicks (Los Angeles Magazine) to Madonna (Pitchfork) fronting My Bloody Valentine (Magnet Magazine) and the "love child" of The Cranberries and The Smiths (Billboard) collaborators Solon Bixler and Rachel Stolte’s sophomore full-length effort is a seamless release of full throttle guitar, moody synths and haunting ballads that both electrify and chill.
Founded in 2005, Great Northern’s syncopated love show has garnered a potent set of admirers as the band has toured with the likes of Spoon, Cold War Kids, Silversun Pickups, Fiery Furnaces, Ladytron, The Gutter Twins and Soulsavers since their inception.
