Friday To-Do: Grand Archives

Grand Archives.

GRAND ARCHIVES
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

Well before Joanna Newsom and Iron & Wine and their ilk started mining the folk traditions of the '60s and '70s, Seattle's Carissa's Wierd (misspelled on purpose) made it big in the Northwest on the strength of their throwback folk-rock. From 1995 to 2003, the band toured and recorded tirelessly, always seeming to be on the verge of breaking out nationally, but never pushing through. Splinter groups have fared better. Guitarists Mat Brooke and Ben Bridwell formed Band of Horses, which, after two albums, is arguably the biggest name on Sub Pop's roster. Now comes Grand Archives, formed by Brooke after he split from Band of Horses after the first record. Where Bridwell leans heavily on Neil Young, Brooke and Grand Archives draw influences from sunny '60s Cali pop, bands like CSNY and the Mamas and the Papas. So: five-part harmonies, whistling, harmonica-filled bridges, brightness. Another Carissa's Wierd alumna, Sera Cahoone, performs in one of the opening slots. She aspires to be considered as the love child of “Buck Owens and Cat Power.” Dallas indie-poppers the New Frontiers also perform.
