Texan indie rock melody makers Eisley are not even a month out from the release of their latest record Currents (it dropped on May 28). It was the first of the band's releases recorded and produced entirely on their own, and they credit that freedom with the blossoming of creativity and resulting 12 tracks to show for it. The fivesome is a true family affair, comprised of four DuPree siblings and a DuPree cousin, and the family ties extend to the tour as Eisley singer/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis is married to Max Bemis, the mastermind of tourmates Say Anything. Supporting Eisley and Say Anything on this leg of the tour are HRVRD and Northern Faces. We won't hesitate to say this will be one of the more amazing shows 'round these parts this year.
Eisley, with Say Anything, HRVRD and Northern Faces
June 19, 8 p.m., $17.50-$21, Toad's Place, 300 York St., New Haven, (203) 624-TOAD, toadsplace.com.
