Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Aliver Hall/Vibe & Direct/Glostik Willy/Escape Pod

When: Sat., July 26, 8:30 p.m. 2014

They’ve been expanding their horizons lately, reaching out across the Midwest’s festival opportunities and casting their names into all sorts of regional hats, but Aliver Hall has formed a hefty foundation in their native Akron (and, of course, up here in Cleveland). The band’s 2013 EP, Chasing the Rain, ranks among the tightest collection of songs released in Northeast Ohio in the past year. It’s a laid-back delight, one swimming in major-key jams and finely crafted summertime songwriting. The title track buzzes along a funky bass line and the dual guitars of Jim Tauscher and Nick Reese. You can sorta get a feel for how they might improvise on-stage as the song progresses into a murky rock throwdown. Listen, they’ve got chops, and you’d be missing out on something terrific if you skipped this one. Oh, and watch for their new album later this year, by the way. (Sandy)
