Now Nick Gaynier and his crew are back in town for the first time in at least a year, a sort-of homecoming tonight at Radio in Somerville, with a fresh batch of new-to-us songs and more of the kinetic rock-pop energy that gave us the same rush back in the mid-2000s that those sweet 5-Hour Energy Boost bottles do now. Without charging us $3.49 for each high.
Also on tonight's bill are Vanya noise-mongering faves Soccer Mom, the rock romanticists Future Carnivores -- they have a new video for "What's Unbelievable" that is worth your time -- and San Francisco's Tartufi, who I haven't a clue about outside these props from Spin. Solid bill all around.
Here's a new track from Appomattox, called "Radiator." Ask them to play it tonight.
