Manchester Orchestra

9 p.m. Saturday, July 28. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

Though Atlanta's Manchester Orchestra has only been together since 2005, the act has already accomplished more than most bands do in their entire career, including appearances at Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo as well as landing the coveted opening spot on Brand New's last U.S. tour. However, a cursory listen to the band's latest full-length, I'm Like A Virgin Losing A Child, reveals that a quick ascent shouldn't be too shocking. Incorporating elements of post-rock, hardcore and indie rock, the band's unique musical amalgam features crossover appeal that transcends subgenres. If you can't find the disc, don't fret; the band recently signed a major-label distribution deal. In other words, now you have no excuse to avoid checking out one of 2007's most promising acts.
