Local Motion: Miles of Wire 

Saturday, March 18. Way Out Club, 2525 South Jefferson Avenue.

Attending a Miles of Wire show perhaps isn't the best remedy for a St. Patrick's Day hangover; after all, the quartet's sweet introspection is best washed down with a beer or two. But singer Raphael Maurice's scruffy vocals and the group's rollicking alt-country dust clouds just might be the perfect salve for the heart. Based on the strength of demos they entered into a Grammy showcase, the bandmates had the privilege of recording at the legendary Sun Studios last January, and the solid results — a late-period Replacements jingle-jangle titled "Marriage" and the boot-stomping rocker "Frustrating Mess" — reveal Miles of Wire to be one of the most underrated bands in town.
