THRIVING IVORY
7 p.m., Juanita's, $12.50 adv., $15 d.o.s.

This Bay Area quintet made quite a name for itself before and certainly after the release of its self-titled debut album in June 2008. The album reached No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. Viewers familiar with VH1's rising artist showcase series, “You Oughta Know,” likely have seen and heard the video for the single “Angels on the Moon,” which, after six months, broke through into the U.S. Pop 100, reached No. 28, and sounds as timeless as a couples-skate number. Pianist and songwriter Scott Jason is the band's founding member and co-producer. He met and formed an immediate chemistry with charismatic lead singer Clayton Stroope at UC Santa Barbara. Stroope possesses a powerful set of pipes that afford him an impressive vocal range. The band claims to derive its energy from rock predecessors such as Queen, U2 and Elton John, but it has a modern rock edge that fans of Maroon 5 and Gavin DeGraw should gravitate toward. Their all-ages show is supported by Barcelona, an indie-rock outfit from Seattle that landed a deal with Universal in December, and Company of Thieves, a trio from Chicago.
