The Kinetiks

with The Alice Rose / The ACBs

Jackpot Music Hall

Inspired by their favorite kinds of shows (the energetic, crowd-loving, raw variety),The Kinetiks write songs heavy in female harmonies, big guitar chords, electronic expression and dance-your-pants-off beats. Their long-anticipated debut EP "Music History" arrived late last year after 10 months of work and the introduction of bassist Phil Gratz. Fans of jangle-pop gurus such as The Posies and Sloan should take to The Alice Rose, a quintet from Austin that dishes out sharp classic pop a la Squeeze. The unsigned group released a well-received LP dubbed "Phonographic Memory" in 2006 and showcased at the SXSW music festival.Heavy on vocal harmonies and absolutely not shy of THE hook, Kansas City's The ACB's have earned a reputation for epic performances and pants-off power-pop that could make Matthew Sweet do the robot (er, the enthusiastic head nod?).
