These United States
Million Young is a chillwave project by Floridian Mike Diaz. Let me tell you about his music, then you can check it out tonight at Cafe Bourbon Street, 2216 Summit St. Starts around 9 p.m., $5 cover. Not sure if anybody is signed on to support.
Next door at The Summit, 2210 Summit St., These United States will perform pop-minded, art-tinged roots rock that's way better than what Wilco is cranking out these days. The more I listen to their music, the more I quite like this band — to keep the Wilco comparison going, their stuff reminds me of "Being There" era songwriting with "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" era production. They'll be joined tonight by Breathe Owl Breathe and Lydia Loveless. 9 p.m. start on this one too, with $8 tickets.
