We're not sure how to parse the title of this multi-band bill — bets are it's a play on words involving the Rolling Stones — but judging from the participants, it appears to be code for "music incorporating elements of pop, shoegaze and psychedelic rock." That's certainly the case with the locals on the bill, including Brian Jonestown Massacre worshippers Troubadour Dali; indie-fuzz shapeshifters Bunnygrunt; ambient noiseniks Learn, Artist; feedback mongers Stella Mora and Spacemen 3 fans Tone Rodent. The out-of-towners are just as stylish: The Tambourine Club's song about its hometown, "Kansas City," is a scorched Nuggets-vintage number, while Columbus, Ohio's Floorian creates hushed, taffy-pulled pop songs that conjure the Velvet Underground conducting church service.
