First Aid Kit - (Set time: 10:00 PM)

The follow up to last year's highly-praised debut LP The Big Black & The Blue, The Lion's Roar finds sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg at their finest, singing bittersweet songs that frequently juxtapose sadness and beauty. The title track opener is a glorious, punchy waltz and the achingly lovely "Emmylou" is a wistful swell of acoustic guitar, pedal steel and piano, over which Klara's bell-clear voice name-checks heroes Ms. Harris, Gram Parsons, Johnny Cash, and June Carter. Filled with exquisite harmonies and coated with a deceptively playful patina, "Blue" is among the album's most upbeat tracks, while the gentle "To A Poet" comes to an elegant, cinematic close of soaring strings. Final track "King Of The World" brings The Lion's Roar to an exuberant end, all handclaps, fiddle, accordion, and horns - also featuring Conor Oberst on the last verse and instrumentals by The Felice Brothers (who happened to roll through town during the recording session). Throughout the album, the Söderbergs' evocative, preternatural harmonies and remarkable songwriting take centerstage, expanding upon the already accomplished storytelling shown on their debut.

Awesomely cute indie-pop from the UK! "Call them 'folk' if you must, but songs such as 'Sunday' and future single 'Me and You' are so gut-wrenchingly beautiful that the term sells them short. No, singing percussionist Rebecca and guitarist Charles are more than folking troubadours, they're a musical revelation. Tonight in a jam-packed theatre 'Summer' is pure heart-bursting pop, propelled by odd absurdist chair and table thwacking. Equally brilliant is debut single 'Because We're Dead'; imagine Nico playing with Bob Dylan if they were raised in Sheffield." --NME
