Two Nights of Silversun Pickups at Terminal 5October 12th, 2012
Brian Aubert (vocals and guitar), Chris Guanlao (drums), Joe Lester (keys and samples) and Nikki Monninger (bass and vocals) knew one another from playing in various L.A. bands before forming Silversun Pickups there in 2002. Their layered melodies and spellbinding dreamy pop immediately drew comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins with the release of their debut EP, Pikul, in 2005. And after releasing their third studio album, the well-received Neck of the Woods (stream it below), this past spring, Silversun Pickups (above, playing “Skin Graph” on The Late Show with David Letterman) have been out on tour, which brings them to our fair city for two big dates at Terminal 5. Sunday is sold out, but do yourself a favor and go see them there on Monday.
