Ex Norwegian Plays Propaganda
The local, non-Scandinavian band Ex Norwegian will bring its power-pop to Propaganda Saturday along with Orlando band Mike Dunn & The Kings of New England and Bocas Alexander. Citing that the band names Badfinger as an influence, New Times music editor Arielle Castillo wrote in February, Ex-Norwegian has absorbed that [Badfinger's] (and Big Star's, and the Raspberries') penchant for wistful, sliding melodies over a pleasantly, slightly dirty guitar chug.
Mike Dunn & The Kings of New England also subscribes to the pop pantheon, but its more Americana-driven a la Tom Petty and Sprinsteen. A fireworks show will follow the show, which starts at 8 p.m.
Sat., July 4, 8 p.m., 2009
