Railbird/The Rex Complex
Little known, but worth finding out about, New York's Railbird will be performing tonight at the Eighth Street Taproom, 801 N.H. Lead singer and main songwriter Sarah Pedinotti's whispy, vulnerable voice is accented by ambient, but precise digital and analog instruments that flourish at times before dropping behind Pedinotti's voice. Think: Bjork's "Vespertine" only less sonically robust and looser and you're not too far off.
Opening act The Rex Complex, is a significantly more direct venture. With live performances that are significantly more unhinged than their studio counterparts, expect a lot of energy, volume and sweat from patrons and players alike.
The 21-and-older show starts at 10 p.m. and is $3.
