Whirr, Nothing

9 pm., Tuesday August 27 | $8 advance, $10 day of show.
Bunk Bar
1028 SE Water Ave.
 
[SWEET SONIC TRIPS] This double bill provides a nice précis on the effects of the U.K. shoegaze scene on the current crop of artists. Some bands have taken the approach Nothing has, tying the overdriven guitars and dreamlike vocals to the earthy sprawl of the underground rock of the late ’80s and early ’90s. Others do what Whirr does on recent album Pipe Dreams, finding kinship with the speedier tempos and glossier textures of the English twee-pop contingent. What keeps these two takes on shoegaze connected is a deep love for melody, and a whole mess of effects pedals.
