Local Motion: Slow Parade

Saturday, March 4. 9 p.m. Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue)


The comment on Slow Parade's MySpace profile ( that says "...almost hard to believe you are from St. Louis with that kind of sound!" perfectly sums up the band's otherworldly quality. Delicate, Britpop-fancying rock partial to the fragile gossamer swoons of the Delays (as well as Radiohead's The Bends) creeps as if mired in a troubling dreamscape, all pensive vocals and murky guitars. Be sure to grab their first EP, Over the Bear, at this plum weekend gig.
