BUILT TO SPILL w/ Lee Ranaldo and the Dust & Slam Dunk

Oct. 18
BUILT TO SPILL w/ Lee Ranaldo and
the Dust & Slam Dunk
The Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St
9 p.m., $22, waitingroomlounge.com

Boise Idaho’s indie rockers Built to Spill are bringing their Northwest sound to Omaha. BTS is currently on tour in support for 2009’s There is no Enemy and will be joined by new band members Steve Gere (drums) and Jason Albertini (bass) who replace departing drummer Scott Plouf and bassist Brett Nelson earlier this year. If heavy, catchy guitar hooks are BTS’s call sign, then Neil Young and Dinosaur Jr. would have to be the band’s mothership. You can hear the influences in the way lead singer Doug Martsch croons like Young and strums the six string like J Mascis. Now that the band has been together for over 20 years, Martsch has no qualms in saying that their sound is better than ever.
