Silversun Pickups with Cage The Elephant and Manchester Orchestra

When: Wed., Sept. 23, 8 p.m. 2009

The four-piece Los Angeles band Silversun Pickups are more polished, more processed, and more ambitious than your average indie rock band. They remind me of the Smashing Pumpkins with less prog-metal in the mix — the breathy, sorta-high-pitched lead vocals, the chick bassist, the textured guitars, the shoegazer-for-arenas sound, the suggestive one-word album title (Swoon to the Pumpkins’ Gish). The band’s sound should more than fill up Minglewood Hall when the Silversun Pickups hit that Midtown venue on Wednesday, September 23rd. Tickets are $28. Showtime is 8 p.m. Cage the Elephant and Manchester Orchestra open. — Chris Herrington
