American Wrestlers/Varsity/Bummed Out

When: Sat., Dec. 10, 9 p.m. 2016

After dissolving his Manchester, England-based project Working for a Nuclear Free City in 2013, Gary McClure rebranded himself as American Wrestlers. The transatlantic name serves as a premonition for McClure’s move to St. Louis shortly after the release of his self-titled debut. For his 2016 follow-up, Goodbye Terrible Youth, McClure bolstered his lo-fi dream pop with a full backing band that includes his American bride. Melding old-school indie rock jangle guitar with McClure’s melodious voice and ear for pop, American Wrestlers will bring fans of Big Star and the Replacements under the same roof as followers of Fun. or Passion Pit.
