The band’s music, both heavier (in raw sonic power) and lighter (in mood) than many of its contemporaries, is masterfully produced and composed with increasing inventiveness and attention to fine detail. BLTS’ sophomore LP, produced by This Will Destroy You’s Alex Bhore and out back in 2015 on Sun Sea Sky Productions, is the work of a band that has found its identity and, in it, its way forward.
But, apparently, we aren’t the only ones feeling the heat of BLTS’ brilliance. Saturday marks the beginning of a potentially game-changing tour for the group, as they play their final show before heading off on a 10-date tour of Japan. The boys will be backed in this departing salvo by jazz-rock outfit Cliffside of the Pinkeyed Sky.
$8-$12, 8pm, Ventura, 1011 Avenue B, (210) 802-6940, facebook.com/venturasatx.
