Tonight: Priory at Walnut Room

Slap the folk label on a band is kind of a sweeping generalization -- simplicity in instrumentation and a focus on vocals might be a better way to describe Portland's Priory, who come through Denver tonight for the second time in the past few months. Reminiscent of Wolf Parade and the Anniversary, Priory pulls it all back with gorgeous melodies shared between synth lines and vocals.

Signed to Expunged Records, Priory is gearing up for the release of it's first full-length this spring, but in the mean time you can buy the band's 2010 seven-song EP, Cold Hands, from them directly at the show tonight. And you should, because merch money is how bands put gas in their tanks. This show is 21 and up, and tickets are $7. Doors open at 7 p.m., bands start at 8 p.m.
