Music fans looking for a worthwhile show this Friday should consider the lineup Soda Bar has to offer. Holograms, post punk rockers from Sweden, will be headlining the smallish City Heights venue. Storming out of the gate a couple of years ago, this quartet has released two full length albums in a short time span. The songs have an immediacy to them, as commonly found in punk bands. Add a synthesizer to the mix and there is something unique to the band's sound. This is a band finding their sound while staying above the competition.
Watch a video of Meditations from Forever (Captured Tracks) by Holograms below.
Sharing the bill are art punk rock band TV Ghost, hailing from the Midwest (IN). Disconnect (In the Red) was released earlier this year and is music of a darker nature. Comparisons have been made to Echo & the Bunnymen, though there is a harsher nature to their songs. This is punk rock of the hypnotic form, easy to drift to without getting lost. A great way to set the table for the headliner.

Be sure to arrive early for local goodness compliments of Tropical Popsicle (LP release). A great night of music at a great venue. What else could you possibly want? Tickets can be purchased in advance here.
