When: Sat., Feb. 17, 8 p.m.
Led by charismatic singer Aaron Bruno, AWOL Nation, an electronic/indie rock act, scored big a few years back with "Sail," a soaring anthem that found its way into TV shows. commercials and films. With 2015's Run, the band slows things down. With its cooing vocals and piano melody, "Fat Face" could pass a Beach Boys tune, and "Jailbreak" comes off as soul/R&B. Of course, it's not all mellow stuff. The band cranks up the guitars on "Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)," a song that finds Bruno practically screaming. Songs such as "Here Come the Runts" and "Passion," tracks from the group's new album, the just-released Here Come the Runts, emphasize the industrial rock side of its sound. Expect the band to show off its range at tonight's show. (Niesel)
