Des Moines’ garage/guitar/DIY pop rawkers THE FUSS are coming to Lawrence, accompanied by Vehicles, and Odd Harmona! Frank’s North Star Tavern @ 9 PM.
“The band Vehicles sets a standard for guitar tone exploration amidst songs written for an audience keen on hooks and catchy melodies. ECHO, Vehicles’ newest release, is a polished production in the musical vein of 80’s rock heroes like Simple Minds and Echo and the Bunnymen, but not far from Vehicles’ contemporaries like The Killers and Foals.”
– Torin Andersen, www.wearewichita.com album reviews
The Fuss is a DIY Guitar-Pop band from Des Moines, Iowa (est. 2015). Combining guitar-centric elements of ‘60s garage-rock, poignant lyricism and buoyant vocal melodies, they’ve crafted an engaging and energetic live set with a sound that’s been described as “sonically adventurous*” and “severely catchy**”. *(Franck Zeisel, Benzine Mag) **(Ben Kieffer, IPR Host of River to River & Java Blend)
Odd Harmona is a Lawrence and Kansas City mid-coast rock outfit that’s been playing together for 2-and-a-half years. The band has been touted for its raw rock ‘n’ roll sound, finely-tuned songwriting, tasty vocal harmonies, and layered instrumental parts.
