Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists/The Sidekicks/So Long, Albatross

When: Fri., July 26, 9 p.m. 2013

There have been references to a new Ted Leo album for quite a while now, but fans continue to fall back on 2010’s The Brutalist Bricks. It combines the frenetic stylings of past albums with the at-times melodious vocal work the singer is known for. Take “Bottled in Cork,” for example, which features gentle lyricisms from Leo while the band builds out an ambient groove in the background. The drums and guitar work interplay well together throughout the tune. “One Polaroid a Day” accomplishes a similar draw (complete with an upbeat clapping bridge!). The Grog is absolutely the perfect spot for a Ted Leo show. It’s gonna be a good one. The Sidekicks and So Long, Albatross will open the show. (Eric Sandy)
