In the early part of this decade, there were few indie bands as scene-celebrated in Orlando as the Great Deceivers. And then, several years ago, they just up and moved to Chicago – all of them. Ain’t that some shit? Their roots and legacy, however, still linger deep here, so this homecoming is a pretty big deal for anyone with any sense of local rock history. Their dynamic blend of sadcore and math signatures etched their place in the Orlando canon with a sound that was both sensitive and smart. To make it a proper party, a solid support roster has been summoned. For their part, the Deceivers are bringing home a promising tourmate, Chicago post-hardcore act Slow Mass. Completing the bridge are two bright lights of the next rising class of indie-rockers: twee-pop band TV Dinner and melodic punks Crit. It looks to be a well-rounded return for one of the most notable and beloved homegrown indie bands of the last 10 years.

with Slow Mass, Crit, TV Dinner | 9 p.m. Thursday, July 20 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $7
