In House #1707: Headlights, White Whale, Decibully in Salt Lake City
It's a midwest invasion of sorts tonight at Salt Lake City's Kilby Court, as Headlights, White Whale, and Decibully all take the stage as part of a triple bill. Chicago's Headlights recently released their debut full-length, Kill Them With Kindness, and have been garnering rave reviews ever since. The accomplished and diverse sounding release is not surprising considering that the trio are all veterans of the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois indie scene as part of bands like Absinthe Blind and Orphans. The date finds them one third of the way through a lengthy tour that has them on the road through November.
Also tonight, also touring in support of a recent debut full-length, is White Whale, who released WWI a couple of months back on Merge. A supergroup of sorts, the Lawrence, Kansas-based band features members of the Get Up Kids, Thee Higher Burning Fire, and Butterglory, though their sound seems to retain little from any of the three.
The third act on tonight's bill is Milwaukee's Decibully, whose most recent release is the politically-tinged and interesting sounding Sing Out America. The band is also offering a new tour-only EP.
