With the release of The Man Who
, Glasgow's Travis have given the world the latest in a line of contemporary classics from the British Isles, following in the footsteps of What's the Story (Morning Glory)
, OK Computer
and Urban Hymns
. The group's distinct, cerebral Pop songs have already made them superstars in England and Europe (they've won multiple "British Grammys") and their following in the States is on the brink of outgrowing their cult-status. This show is a must see for any fan of smart Pop songs that don't pander (yes, even their Britney Spears cover is mightily transcendent).
At Bogart's on Saturday with Remy Zero.
