Kal Marks and Chandeliers, two really awesome Boston-based bands, are having a mini-tour around New England in the coming weeks and you’d be an idiot to miss out. Kal Marks features an instantly recognizable dynamic, bluesy style and one of the most unique singers in the city. Chandeliers is a three-piece from Allston that calls back to the olden days of Modest Mouse and the distorted vocals of Desaparecidos, but with an updated punk twist that can calm down within a second. So, if you’re around any of these venues, go check them out. And if you have no idea where these houses are, just give them an e-mail and they’ll tell you what you need to know.
Sure, it’s fun to see a gig with a bunch of like-minded acts playing music that can be filed under the same exact micro-genre. But sometimes a show featuring three distinct sounding groups — like the one that went down at Great Scott on April 7th — can translate into an equally cohesive experience. Especially when you’re at the best sounding club in Boston.
