Rock/Pop

The New Trust, The Action Design, Four Through Six

When: Mon., June 1, 7:30 p.m. 2009

When Sara Sanger started playing guitar, she claims, her goal was to get good enough to play "Puff, the Magic Dragon" for her kids. The cheap shot here would be to say she's still working at it, but the New Trust is actually quite good. Fronted by Sanger and husband Josh Staples, this California band is one of the few that hasn't yet disowned the indie rock label. Nor does it need to; its music boasts many of the genre's best elements, with traces of Pixies-eque male/female vocals and a brainy pop-punk aesthetic that never gets precious. Action Design and Four Through Six open this 7:30 p.m. all-ages show at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., ticketweb.com). Tickets are $10 ($8 in advance). — Bill Forman

Price: $8-$10
