Pageantry, RMRS, Levees

Denton's Pageantry and SA's RMRS weave ethereal soundscapes, fearing no genre and conquering many, but always staying close to the roots of poppy, emotional indie. If A&R guys still existed and they were to catch Levees on the day that the competition signed the next Alabama Shakes, the group might be rocketing up the charts faster than you can say "But I don't even like the Alabama Shakes." With The Continuums. $5, 9pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 735-7775
