Copeland: A Nice Place to Visit

The third time is charmed for Copeland. These indie-rockers open for The Rentals on Wednesday with lush, expansive instrumentals, marble-smooth vocals, pale emo complexions, and a bald guy. Their third album, Eat, Sleep, Repeat strikes up an intense, organic chord that not only takes the road less traveled but crosses over a bridge and jumps into something amorphous, refreshing, and glinting with detail. “It's the first Copeland release that, when I listen to it, I sometimes find myself singing along, as if I were not a member of the band but rather a listener,” guitarist and fellow songwriter Bryan Laurenson says on the band’s website “Listeners” are invited to do just that, as well as layering on their vocals, tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Revolution (200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Goldenboy will also perform. Tickets cost $18. Call 954-727-0950, or visit
