Cheerleader Back Home at The Boot & Saddle June 7

After a jam-packed run of shows in the UK, Cheerleader are set to perform tonight at The Boot and Saddle. Their latest single “Perfect Vision” (which will be available on vinyl June 16 via Young & Lust/Bright Antenna) incorporates a punchy-percussive-pop bounce, propelling the harmonious low-gravity vocals and establishing an enjoyable dance-centric atmosphere. However, it’s the B-side of their forthcoming release, “Waiting, Waiting,” that’s really helping me enjoy this beautiful weather. The experimental exploits of Needle Points bassist Brian Langan’s psych-pop project Langor will surely entertain with its magnetic melodies and humorous, unpredictable turns and twists. Opening this evening’s festivities will be Chris Coulton’s energy-inducing electro/jungle-pop experience known as Dream Safari. The Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Cheerleader Gearing Up for Varsity at KFN March 3

Lighthearted psych-pop five-piece Cheerleader is gearing up to make the trek to SXSW this year for the first time. The fledgling outfit only has a handful of shows and songs under its belt, but the band is made up of a group of experienced musicians, who have performed in such acts as Sun Airway, Former Belle and Shorty boy-boy, and has already gathered some nice buzz off its lead single "New Daze," a languid, instantly enjoyable indie-pop ditty that will be appearing on the group's debut EP. They'll be returning to Kung Fu Necktie this evening, the site of their first live performance, where they'll be joined by Newark, DE dream-pop quartet Fiance and garage-psych crew The TeleVibes. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
