Grand Duchy, Big Science, Empires Recommended Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Fri., July 24, 9:30 p.m. 2009

The North Atlantic was a hardworking group of dudes you’ve most likely never heard of who spent years making spiky postrock-influenced posthardcore. Big Science is some of those same dudes making lush, spacey alt-rock that needs nary a “post-” to describe, and though you probably haven’t heard of them either they’re worth seeking out. Few other bands cite Big Country as frequently as they do, and fewer are able to re-create that group’s combination of expansiveness and catchiness. Grand Duchy, the husband-and-wife group of Pixies front man Black Francis and Violet Clark, headlines. —Miles Raymer
