The band, featuring Erik Nordin, James Simonson, Brett Lucas, and Brent McKay, will be ably supported by St. Cecelia and Nick Fugedi.

According to the Lager website, “Deftly treading a line between high-flying art-rock and classic rock's more organic, pastoral environs, the Strange have delivered a sophomore album that could -- and should -- bring new attention to the Detroit threesome.
A liquid, languid mood dominates the album, but a tense current rides beneath these seven tracks to give the proceedings a visceral edge. This is a trio of gifted players -- drummer Erik Nordin, guitarist Nathan Murphy and outstanding vocalist Brent McKay -- who deliver a skilled and polished performance without descending into wankery.

Cover is $5 and doors are at 9 p.m.
