Tour It Up

Send the Whisperlights on their way

When you think of pop music, it’s probably not Adam and the Ants, Devo, or even the King of Pop that comes to mind. With so many soulless record-label monkeys watering it down today (sorry, Miley), it’s easy to forget that pop music actually extends far beyond what’s playing at the Gap.

Tempe-based band Whisperlights is a testament to the idea of good pop music. Incorporating less typical instruments like the electric violin and keyboard, the Whisperlights embodies a darker, heavier side of the genre that calls to mind acts like the Arcade Fire and the Walkmen.

Before the boys take off on their west coast tour, they’re throwing a killer bon-voyage bash at Yucca Tap Room.
