Birds & Batteries, Tango Red Tapestry

When: Thu., Sept. 2, 8 p.m. 2010

San Francisco's Birds & Batteries come out this way pretty regularly, and it's easy to hear why the experimental indie-pop group has built a local following. Its recent EP dabbles in a more synthetic sound than prior efforts — they're blaming it on an obsession with Bowie's Scary Monsters and the P-Funk dynasty — but there's still a good dose of Americana in the mix. This is, after all, the band that broke out the Fender Rhodes and pedal steel for a supremely odd version of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold." Catch them with the Springs' equally arty Tango Red Tapestry beginning at 8 p.m. at the Rocket Room (230 Pueblo Ave., 21-plus; myspace.com/therocketroom) for $3. — Bill Forman
