Porches, Japanese Breakfast, Rivergazer, DJ Disco Phantom

When: Tue., Oct. 4, 8 p.m. 2016

Though many bands are currently trying to reinvent ’80s synth music, Brooklyn-based Porches stand out in an ocean of vaguely European-sounding nu-wavers. Charmingly bleak lyrics and earworm-y hooks glow brightly through singer-songwriter Aaron Maine’s stoner haze. The group smartly balances melancholy and malaise with warm, gurgling synths and snappy electronic drums. Fellow Brooklynite (and Maine’s main squeeze) Greta Kline — aka Frankie Cosmos — is a frequent collaborator and appears on Porches’ acclaimed 2016 album Pool. Porches play on Tuesday, October 4, at ArtsRiot in Burlington, with support from Japanese Breakfast, Rivergazer and DJ Disco Phantom.

Price: $13/15
