Features at Black Cat Wed, May 15

It's cheap, the band is good, and it's at the smaller downstairs stage at Black Cat. "Another One" is a favorite single of mine by this band.

$12 Backstage / Doors at 8:00

From The band's website http://thefeatures.com/:
New single out Feb 2013: The Disorder

The Features' exhilarating album Wilderness (came out June 2012 - Serpents and Snakes/BMG Rights) quickly establishes the Nashville-based combo as one of the most exciting and imaginative bands working today. Songs like "Another One" and "Fats Domino" are marvels of pop ingenuity, animated by vivid lyrics, unshakable hooks, and experimental soul. Wilderness is an amalgamation of influences and inspirations – spanning elements of Krautrock, indie, psychedelia, and classic AOR – to conjure up The Features' own inimitable, indescribable sound.

"I feel like we walk this fine line," says singer/guitarist Matt Pelham. "We're not weird enough for a certain crowd and we're a little bit too out there for the other crowd. We fall in the middle somewhere between mainstream and hipster, which puts us in this weird place, but we're all pretty happy to be here."

    Just found set times on twitter: TONIGHT: The Features (9:45PM), Heyrocco (8:45PM). Doors 8PM. $12 Looks like I will be able to metro to this show! Parking is SOOO hard near Black Cat since they changed half the street signs to resident only.

    I'm trying to get set times for tonight. Doors are at 8 pm. I imagine the opener will go on between 8:30 and 9, main act between 10 and 11. If you happen to see the set times before I do, post them here. My cell is[masked] - text me when you arrive. Feel free to send me your cell numbers in advance if you feel like it. If you can't make it, please change your RSVP in Meetup. Thanks! Anita

    These guys remind me a bit of the Doors.

    Hope you'll join me at this Meetup! If you do RSVP to attend, please do me the favor of finding/texting me when you arrive, even if you don't want to hang with the Meetup group for the whole show. Last time I hosted, 15 people signed up and only 3 found me. That's disheartening. I appreciate the courtesy or a quick text "I'm here, where are you?", or change your RSVP to "no" if you can't make it last minute. Thanks!
