Kopecky Family Band

8 p.m. Friday, January 20. The Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.



There's still a beating heart left in chamber pop, and you can find it in Kopecky Family Band. Chances are good that if the Nashville six-piece has caught your attention, it was because you either saw the band live or have a friend who did and couldn't keep it to herself. Such is the persuasive power of KFB and its penchant for cinematic builds that Paste Magazine named it one of the best 25 live acts of 2011. And if list appearances don't do it for you, give 2010's The Disaster, which the band describes as "a seven-song adventure," a spin.

Sharing Is Caring: KFB shares equal billing with not-so-distant relative Quiet Corral, from Lawrence, Kansas.
