The final date of Circa Waves’s headline tour supporting their sophomore album Different Creatures hits the Casbah on June 14. The Liverpool lads have beefed up their somewhat twee sound, thanks in no small part to wall-o-crunch co-producer Alan Moulder (the Killers, Arctic Monkeys), but at heart the quartet still seems to be plying the same sort of BBC-beloved pop music that earns them high marks in UK mags like NME and Kerrang. U.S. critics have been more lukewarm and stateside audiences far smaller, but this show is one of only two on this tour to include an opening set from Manhattan rock trio Dreamers, which could easily help sell out the club.
