Van Allen Belt
Van Allen Belt, tides.
Named after the magnetic field around celestial objects, Pittsburgh pop quartet Van Allen Belt wields a similar magnetic charm on their 2014 LP Heaven on a Branch
. In the spirit of Washed Out, Beach House and the host of other modern acts contained in the dream pop aesthetic into which tides. comfortably slides, there’s a subtle undercurrent to their music, gentle at first, that draws you in closer. And like those acts, the trick lies in making the complex sound simple. With Les Zombies, Varrin Menchen. $5, 9pm, K23 Gallery, 704 Fredericksburg, (210) 776-5635
