Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab with Yeasayer

Three fine bands of recent vintage will play Skully's, 1151 N. High St., tonight. Topping the bill is Yeasayer, which now features Sinkane's Ahmed Gallab on percussion. I saw this lineup at Bonnaroo last month, and it's definitely an upgrade from what they were doing as a four-piece. Genesis-style global prog rock requires as much percussion as it can get, you know? Before the affirmative ones take the stage, Ponytail will play first-rate rock 'n' roll with shrill, unlistenable vocals. Beginning the night are TNV BFFs Lovvers, British pop-punk prodigies who rock like the Exploding Hearts and The Only Ones. Cover is $12 at the door, which opens at 8 p.m.
