Originally from Leeds, now of New York, Your Vegas sound like a well-studied exercise in pussified arena rock. Through their debut album, A Town And Two Cities, echoes the multilayered guitar lines of U2, Coldplay’s fey melancholy, and Keane’s crybaby vocals.

Learn which soon-to-be ringtone will break hearts tonight at Webster Hall.
