Wavves w/ Fidlar, Cheatahs
Featuring members of the late Jay Reatard's band, Wavves will play their first show in Milwaukee tonight, just four days after releasing their latest album, Afraid of Heights. Marrying unrestrained vocals (akin to those on Animal Collective's "Fireworks") with surfy guitar riffs, Wavves lives up to its namesake with their beach-worthy jams. On the flip side, drowsy tracks such as Afraid of Heights' single "Demon to Lean On" channel Nirvana with their plodding tempos. Supporting Wavves is fellow Cali-based surf-rock band Fidlar.
