CRUISR, Cold Fronts, Cheerleader & More at the TLA Sept. 12

CRUISR headlines a show this evening at the TLA, which showcases a triumvirate of locally-centric pop rockers. The quartet fortifies virulent melodies with enticing, penetrating all-inclusive grooves. Those casual, carefree vibes and polished, crowd participation-inducing vocals are just the right recipe for the weekend as one releases the tension and momentarily lets it go. With their highly anticipated debut LP Forever Whatever scheduled for release on October 23 via Sire, Cold Fronts mesh robust, universal pop-rock anthems with stick-to-your-ribs thumping backend and white-hot guitar interplay. The endearing warmth of power-pop Cheerleader sunkisses your ears with rich harmonies and a cozy haze, while the merger of pouncing electro-percussive and magnetizing vocals mesh in New York’s VÉRITÉ. TLA, 334 South St., 7:30pm, $15, All Ages - Michael Colavita
