Alberta Cross is but the latest example of a promising rock band to meet a crashing, burning, big-advance-blowing fate in LA. One need have no sympathy for the devil in the details of Petter Ericson Stakee's flame-out, but one need only cue up the flamboyantly embittered forthcoming release Songs of Patience to hear a rock band cut through the accursed comparisons to Oasis and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and find the psych-rock sweet spot. So what if the money for the weekend party is long gone? The guitars and harmonies and hooks still rage on, a little wiser, but still wild in the sound of big, vividly-imagined rock & roll.

Don't Miss: ATO labelmate Everest starts off the night with new material from its excellent, play-very-loud third album Ownerless.
