ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

The Sights combine the unobtrusive honesty of The Band with slivers of influence from their own personal record collections: Ike & Tina, Solomon Burke, Everly Brothers, Bob Seger, and Tim Hardin. The result is music that's classic, not derivative - filled with swagger and deference - and ridiculously catchy. "...Taking its cue from scuzzed '60s beat-pop, it manages to cram echoes of Supergrass, The Who, and rockers Humble Pie into the coolest and most accomplished record to come out of Detroit since The White Stripes"--NME. "At last - a new Detroit-garage band that comes in colors. Guitarist Eddie Baranek sings like he has a good case of Badfinger and writes with the R&B concision of '65 Motown, while the pools of mellotron and circus organ carry the '68 stamp of the day-glo Pretty Things and Michigan's own forgotten SRC"--Rolling Stone. With the DIRTY SWEET and more. $6, 8PM, all ages.
