The Moth & the Flame Play Mercury Lounge on Tuesday Night

November 25th, 2016

Formed in the Utah desert five years ago, the Moth & the Flame—Brandon Robbins (vocals and guitar), Mark Garbett (keys and vocals), Andrew Tolman (drums) and Michael Goldman (bass)—have been making the kind of experimental rock that, for many, immediately calls to mind Radiohead. The quartet has since relocated to Los Angeles, and the Moth & the Flame (above, performing an acoustic version of “Live While I Breathe” live on location) put out their second studio full-length, Young & Unafraid (stream it below), earlier this year. And winding down an East Coast swing, they play Mercury Lounge on Tuesday, and 888 open the show.
