The Downtown Club

The Downtown Club, DRGN KING & Cruiser Opening for Yacht at The Boot & Saddle Oct. 24

Over the hump and just before the weekend, Thursday is looking up. Red Bull Sound Select, curated by Making Time, is bringing a free show to The Boot and Saddle; all you have to do is RSVP. Leading off the night is local act, The Downtown Club.  The group delves into the realm of post-punk, laying on a heavy synth and relentless drum. Both instruments together create a hypnotizing rhythm that’s made all the more mesmerizing by the seductive vocals of April Harkanson. There’s a certain control to their sound, a technical precision that builds tension and raises the heart rate, making for an intense ride. Also on the bill is DRGN KING, the brainchild of Dominic Angelella and Ritz Reynolds that has expanded to a full band and a revolving door of special guests. It’s hard to pin down the group’s particular sound, but one thing is for sure: Each track is filled with soulful joy. One listen and it’s evident that these guys truly enjoy what they play, and hopefully have no intention of stopping. Headlining the evening is the LA-based group, Yacht. They experiment in the electronic, ranging from dance to pop to psychedelic. And rounding out the evening will be the summery tunes of Cruiser. With such a varied lineup and no cover charge, there’s every reason to head out this Thursday and start the weekend off right. The Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, Free, 21+ - Shaylin O’Connell
