Barkuna+Imaginary Weapons+Wild Yaks
A great bill of local up-and-comers. Barkuna have a real chance at nabbing the Crystal Stilts/Beach House crown for muted, lo-fi, insular bummer Band of the Moment: gorgeous codeine music for the Urban Outfitters set. Blooz-punx Wild Yaks are way more raucous and spasmodic, but no less attuned to the catchy stuff. With Imaginary Weapons. All ages.
