In case you didn't know, Local Natives and The Love Language will be performing at 9pm tonight at The Waiting Room lounge right here in Omaha.
The opener, The Love Language is a five-piece indie rock band from Raleigh, North Carolina. ""The Love Language"" began as the recording project of Stuart McLamb. They have two studio albums out, The Love Language (2009) and Libraries(July of 2010).
The headlining band will be Local Natives, who was formerly known as Cavil at Rest, is from Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA. Their debut album, Gorilla Manor, was first released in the UK in November 2009, and later released in the US on February 16, 2010. It has received very positive reviews and the band is touted as one of this year's best new acts. Their sound has been described as "afropop-influenced guitars with hyperactive drumming and hooky three-part harmonies".
Everything the band creates comes from a complete collaboration between their members, from songwriting to artwork. Gorilla Manor, was named after the house they all shared in Orange County, where most of the album was written. “It was insanely messy and there were always friends over knocking around on guitars or our thrift store piano,” said Hahn. “It was an incredible experience and I’ll never forget that time.”
Guaranteed to be a great show, Local Natives are recognized as one of the better live groups touring right now. Hope to see you there.
