The Canyoneers 10 a.m., May 24
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart will play the final U.S. date of their current tour at UCSD’s Loft on September 28, promoting their fourth album, The Echo of Pleasure. Dropping July and produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, the Killers), the first single, “Anymore,” previews their newly polished, anthemic sound. Vancouver power-pop trio the Courtneys will open, touring in support of their sophomore album The Courtneys II, recently released via New Zealand’s Flying Nun Records (the label’s first non-NZ act). Their girl-group bounce meshes well with wall-of-alt guitars, resulting in a contemporary retro sound one might describe as shoegaze Shirelles. The bill includes the Prids.
