OTM’s Guide to #CMW: Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Thousands of artists… An impossible mission.  How does one choose between so many aural pleasures?  How does a music writer manage to see as many of them as possible without exploding?

It’s not an easy task for anyone, let alone the music enthusiast.  With so many shows spread across a large city, sacrifices must be made.  That’s why OTM is here to spotlight top picks for each night.  From alt-rock to electronic and back to grungey punk garage band, OTM has your fix of music picks.

OTM’s Picks For Tuesday, March 19th:

Illitry (8pm, Rivoli)
Sounds Like:  If The Beatles had their drug years now and hung out with Pet Shop Boys and Death Cab For Cutie, this might be the result.  Either way, I dig it far more than The Beatles.


The C’mons
(9pm, Rivoli)
Sounds Like:  If Jenny Lewis and Kay Hanley formed a band of brooding indie-rock domination.


Lyon (10pm, Rivoli)
Sounds Like:   Metric — the early years.


41st and Home (11pm, Annex Live)
Sounds Like:  Arcade Fire feeling Muse-esque bombastic.


The Danger Bees (midnight, Annex Live)
Sounds Like:  Weezer and Ben Fold Five raised a frick-awesome group of children who formed a self-deprecating band.


Old English (12:30am, El Mocambo)
Sounds Like:  The sonic best of 80s electronic pop with the wisdom and lyrics of the best indie folk-rock.  Passion Pit without the chipmunks.
