If you like the Bravery, Shiny Toy Guns, We Were Promised Jetpacks and Manchester Orchestra, then you’ll love the textural alternative indie pop of Silversun Pickups. Hailing from the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, the band known for its driving rhythms and ethereal melodies plays selections from their most recent album, Better Nature. Produced by Jacknife Lee (of U2, Two Door Cinema Club and Crystal Castles fame) and mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Alan Moulder (known for his work with My Bloody Valentine and Nine Inch Nails), the album is the debut release from the band’s own New Machine Recordings. Self-described as “harmonious and intimate, high-flying and deeply personal,” Silversun Pickups are a perfect sonic experience for emotional hipsters who prefer to dance the night away wearing worn-out Chuck Taylors, skinny jeans and T-shirts from bands you’ve never heard of but should. 

7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 9 | The Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Ave. | 407-228-1220 | plazaliveorlando.com | sold out
