Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Nick D' and the Believers/The Womacks/These Knees

When: Sat., Feb. 14, 9 p.m. 2015

In 2013, Columbus-based Nick D' and the Believers put out its first EP; things have slowly snowballed since. "We didn't have any goals or hopes or aspirations," drummer Joseph Barker told us at the time. "We did a lot of work in my home studio and created all this new stuff. We really liked recording that way. All three of us challenged our preconceptions about what's possible, and that allows us to create something new. The group is part of a burgeoning Columbus indie rock scene that includes acts such as Twenty One Pilots and the Floorwalkers. "It's been interesting for me coming from Minneapolis which has a great music scene," says Barker. "But I think Columbus is up and coming. I feel like I came here at a cool time when everybody is figuring out how to make the scene the scene of their dreams." Like previous efforts, the band's new EP Wanted sounds a bit like a cross between MGMT and Foster the People as the terrific title track features call-and-response vocals and percolating synthesizers.
