Manchester Orchestra, An Horse, Harrison Hudson Recommended All Ages Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Wed., May 4, 6:45 p.m. 2011

Pause that mix tape you're making for a sec and go dig up a couple tracks off An Horse's latest, Walls (Mom + Pop). Regardless of whether you're putting together an I-want-you mix to woo your crush or a postbreakup mix to salve your tender heart, there's plenty of rock-ballad sentimentality and loneliness to choose from—"100 Whales" even cops some attitude with the line "Tonight, I'm thinking of someone else" (oh, snap!). The boy-girl Aussie drums/guitar duo is sort of like the Tegan and Sara of their homeland, but with more tough guitars. One adorable complication: When front woman Kate Cooper sings about her heart, her accent makes it sound like "my hat." —Jessica Hopper

Price: $20, $17 in advance
