Fans of smart, catchy AltRock should not miss this weekend's appearance of Columbus' Silo the Huskie. Formed in '94, the band has suffered through lineup changes and even a brief split, but now they've returned with a fantastic, self-titled full-length. Why this band isn't on some kind of big indie label is beyond comprehension. Their debut rocks with a slightly skewed psychedelic sway, buoyed by some phenomenal songwriting and melodies that will pierce your skull. While certainly a Pop band, the band also retains a more sprawling base and an organic, almost rootsy vibe, similar to the mind-bending Pop of Built to Spill. Highlights of the album include the hook-laden "Hotel Mary Appalachia," the quiet, quasi-Neil Young ballad "While You Were Out," and the unique, creeping "Spiral to a Yardsale."

At Top Cat's with Circus of the Sun and Pale Shebah.
