Frame and Mantle, Wave Trails, and VWLS Fill the Kings Rook Club with Creative Indie Sounds by Nick Warren

Friday, April 29

Erie’s own Frame and Mantle are ready to celebrate the release of their latest EP While Our Fields Lie Fallow. The band blends rich, dreamy soundscapes with modern punk rock ethos. You can lose yourself in thick, effects-drenched harmonies before getting shattered by a tidal wave of vocalized emotions. Think Sigur Rós and American Football with some Braid and Underoath thrown in. There are gorgeous, somber horn parts in tracks like “It’s Grammatical/Beechwood.” Sections like “Isle of View” drift into the electronic pop sounds reminiscent of Tycho. This local four-piece have made a beautiful six-song record. Their debut EP will be available at the show.

Celebrating the release of a new EP, Frame and Mantle blends rich, dreamy soundscapes with modern punk rock ethos.

Wave Trails will open up the evening, showcasing their perfect blend of space and chaos. The trio just recorded a new four-song demo as well, which captures their lackadaisical punk imaginations with warbly wonder.

VWLS fills out this trilogy of excellent bands. The quintet are fresh back from their trip to Austin’s SXSW festival. They mix psychedelic sound swirls with angular, disjointed grooves, all forming into a cohesive force.

All three bands are true kindred spirits. This show will be one of the best showcases of local indie in a long time.

In addition to the great bands, Sakura Kitchen will have a “Taco Island” on the premises. If you’re familiar with 1201’s Taco Tuesday, you’ll know what authentic street-style deliciousness to expect. The creative cooking perfectly pairs with the inventive, original music in store for you. – Nick Warren

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!
