All ages pop rock: tight & bright Skybox at Body Electric Tattoo on Mon, Mar 12, 8 pm; Ghost Town Flood opens

Originally uploaded by trudeau.
Skybox is a band from Chicago in the midst of a 6-week tour. Says Billboard magazine, "One moment Skybox’s music calls to mind neo-folkie Devendra Banhart, while at the next it sounds like the atmospheric rock of Muse." When they played Java Junction a few months ago my friends came away shaken by the quintets' tunefulness and well-rehearsedness.

Here they are via Youtube.

Ghost Town Flood opens. The trio - Josh Coker, Brett Roman, Jeff Singleton - has a good-sounding new album: Gunslinger. Thay also have, I think, a certain welled-up energy to lavish upon the audience at Body Electric, which is near the corner of Jordan and Fairfield.

This is gonna be a great show. Skybox is much beloved around town, and GTF is a good-rockin' tonight outfit.
