Jeff's Weekly Pick: Animal Kingdom @ Soda Bar Thursday August 16, 2012

Now that we are officially immersed in the dog days of summer, what better way to spend a Thursday night with none other than British indie rock trio Animal Kingdom at the air conditioned Soda Bar. Having burst on the scene in 2009 with their initial offering Signs and Wonders to much critical acclaim, the lads from North London recently dropped their sophomore effort The Looking Glass in May. Filled with dreamy songs filled with falsetto laden vocals (from Richard Sauberlich) on ballads as well as alternative rock songs, the music definitely grows with repeated listens. The band rehearsed the songs in an old church. Suffice to say the songs build to a crescendo and I am hoping their live performance does the same. Congrats to Cory for getting the band to visit San Diego as part of their current tour. A great way to get the weekend started even it is only this Thursday. Get off the couch and head over to City Heights for what promises to be a great night of music.

The Steelwells set the stage.
