Lithuania Album Release Show at Boot & Saddle August 11

Lithuania’s highly anticipated LP Hardcore Friends is being released this week via Lame-O Records. Tonight, the trio that includes DRGN King’s Dominic Angelella and Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick as well as Ricardo Lagomasino, celebrates with a record release show at Boot & Saddle. Angelella & Slick share vocal duties on songs that whose on your toes punk immediacy is leveled by melodic emotives that glimpse inward. They lay it all out there; then iron it out while reeling it in. Rachel Browne’s (Field Mouse) solo venture Anomie kicks off the festivities. While power pop quartet and Lame-O Records label mates, Year of Glad bridge the gap to the collaborative brethren. Boot & Saddle 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ Michael Colavita

Lithuania have issued a new single called “Place of No Tomorrow,” off their forthcoming LP Hardcore Friends, which is being released on August 14 via Lame-O Records.

New Music Video: "Hardcore Friends" - Lithuania

Directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Lithuania’s video for the title track off their forthcoming LP Hardcore Friends (which will available on August 14 via Lame-O Records on August 14) finds Eric Slick and Dominic Angelella oddly “hopping along” with a plant and ladder respectively, until they meet on a field and shake hands in a blood brothers union. The image is apropos given that Field Mouse’s Rachel Browne and Francis Quinlan (Hop Along) are featured on the song.

Lithuania Opening for Suburban Living at Bourbon & Branch April 25

With Lithuania, what began as the pairing of Eric Slick (Dr. Dog) and Dominic Angelella (DRGN King) has filled out to a four-piece allowing Slick to stand up and step out front, no longer occupying the kit. With their debut LP Hardcore Friends due out via Lame-O Records this summer and a packed schedule of shows ahead, the band’s catchy punk/grunge sounds are sure to become road-tested. Tonight, they open the final show of Suburban Living’s residency at Bourbon and Branch. Chris Coulton ‘s dance-generating, temperature-elevating electro-pop project Dream Safari bridges the gap to the Wesley Bunch-led headliner, whom expose an emotive integrity amid continuously moving instrumental ground. There will also be a DJ set by Vacationer to top off this evening of local up-and-comers. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
