When: Sun., July 20, 7:30 p.m. 2014
At their core, Brooklyn’s Bear Hands are a pop band. Sure, the jangly guitars, eclectic arrangements and vocal trickery help them earn copious indie cred — as did touring with the likes of Passion Pit and We Were Promised Jetpacks. But as their fiery new album Distraction, reveals, the band simply churns out one irresistible hook after another. Catch them at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington this Sunday, July 20, with Junior Prom and Total Slacker.
Price: $12/15. AA
