Tonight in Music: Pelican

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Aug 17, 2011 at 1:17 PM


PELICAN, AEGES, SHELTER RED

(Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE 39th) Pelican doesn't need any fancy gimmicks; just give them a few instruments and a stack of amps that stretches toward the heavens. The instrumental Chicago quartet has etched a name for itself, one colossal riff at a time, as they straddle the fine line between the infinite precision of post-rock and the bong-huffing splendor of stoner rock.
