Phosphorescent + Indians
Event Info: (773) 549-4140 metrochicago.com
Phosphorescent is Alabama boy Matthew Houck and a cast of hirsute rogues. Over the course of five albums, Houck's gone from making twangy, broken, almost hymnal songs, to swaggering, Exile on Main Street–style rock & roll to a combination of the two, doused in psychedelia—as you can hear on Muchacho, his latest for Bloomington, Indiana, imprint Dead Oceans. It's a fabulous record, and the band rocks live.
