Any band that claims Andrew Lloyd Webber as a musical influence deserves a little respect ... even if it makes no sense whatsoever. The Seattle indie-rockers may not bear any similarities to the 63-year-old British composer of Phantom of the Opera, but the quirky, hum-worthy sing-alongsters do elicit a certain coffee house vibe thats fun and trippy, like Jesus Christ Superstar on LSD. Plus, anyone who drops the $8 to see the three-piece tomorrow night at Neumos will get to see the first ever showing of their mokumentary, which was filmed on their US tour and put together by members Michael Trew and Daniel Desrosiers.
Think about it -- any band that features glockenspiels, flute and accordion is bound to be kinky when the cameras turn on.
Autumn Electric will be sharing the stage June 6 with James Apollo and Abraham, and the doors open at 8 p.m.
