Steve Leaf & the Ex Pats

When: Sat., March 26, 8 p.m. 2016

Steve Leaf & the Ex Pats @ New Way Bar - Steve and his Ex Pats like to let the hurt linger on their latest release, Three Circles and a Speaker, a searing break-up album that opts for the slow burn rather than the “rip the Band-Aid off” technique. Taking cues from indie balladeers like Buckley, Malkmus, and Tweedy, Leaf warbles on so earnestly to his fuzzed-out guitar that you can’t help but wish the poor guy some closure. With special guests Joe and These Curious Thoughts. (21+)

Price: $5
