If you've not yet heard (or heard of) Peter, Bjorn & John... keep reading. These Swedish pop/rockers have been putting out a steady stream of iPod worthy albums since 2001. For me, they caught my attention with the whistle-ly hooks of 2006's Young Folks. Their newest release, 2011's Gimme Some (buy it at Insound), is just as strong as anything they've released, making this a great way to see out the month of August! Opening is Molly Rankin. Tickets are $18 advance / $20 day of show.
...and the video that started it all (for me).
