See & Do


THE PARTY OF HELICOPTERS, JON FINLEY, RIZZUDO -- Now anticipating its third release, Party of Helicopters has moved from a straightforward wall of sound to a strongly structured mix of dream-pop vocals and righteous riffage that falls somewhere between Hum and heavy metal -- and well off to the side of likeminded bands who tend to take themselves way too seriously (e.g., Don Caballero). Lured to town by Stickfigure Distribution, Jon Finley, the former Helicopters drummer, opens for his previous band with his blues-meets-beats take on the atmospheric one-man-band. Atlanta's own Rizzudo is a highly calculated math rock band made up of three brothers. Imagine an Irish Rush. The Earl (Ware)
