Can the Liars really fill the Showbox? January is packed with odd bookings at the Market venue, but thats January. Maybe because some of the Baltic Rooms imaginative former bookers are working at the cavernous SoDo spot, its lounge bookings are pretty fun all monthespecially the triple-threat of tonights. Sleepy Eyes of Death have been impressing the pants off fans of M83 and metal-shoegazers since the release of last years Streetlights for a Rib Cage. Truckasaurus, who sequence their vintage synths with a modified Game Boy, and the lo-fi electro group the Long Ranger likewise have the respect of the indie dance communitys gearheads, geeks, and rollerskate-dancers. They dont need luck to fill this room. RACHEL SHIMP
Listen to a sample of Sleepy Eyes of Death's "Eyes Spliced Open."
