Circa Survive, with Terrible Things, O'Brother

When: Thu., Aug. 12 2010

In its weekly "How They Became ..." series, Spin magazine asks a band to tell the fascinating story about where its name comes from. Seems like a decent idea, until that band is Circa Survive. "We'd written pairings of words related to the feelings we got when we wrote music," guitarist Colin Frangicetto told the magazine in March. "Circa Survive was one of those pairings." Well, then. See how their inspiration translates into pretty popular alt-rock — the band's third release, April's Blue Sky Noise, hit No. 11 on the Billboard chart — at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., $16/adv, $20/door) tonight. The show starts at 7:30, with openers Terrible Things and O'Brother. — Kirk Woundy
