Preview: Vietnam at Ace of Cups

From the March 14, 2013 edition

Thanks to a $5,000 Kickstarter campaign (top backers get their portrait painted in watercolor by the band), Michael Gerner’s Brooklyn psych-rock crew Vietnam is back on the road for the first time in half a decade in support of an A.merican D.ream, the band’s comeback album on Mexican Summer. Fans of sprawling, rootsy rock with quivering nasal narration a la “I never took my soul to the bank to cash it in for paper” will be right at home.

Maston, The (newly reassembled) Main Street Gospel and Hector’s Pets round out the lineup Tuesday at Ace of Cups.
