The Sounds of Sweden

When talking indie band popularity these days, the old yardsticks get rubbery. Your lil' bloggin' sis is already tired of I'm From Barcelona, and that act probably sold 713 records. So should this meager mention of the perfectly peppy Euro wave-rock of Sweden's the Sounds automatically make you groan, "Oh, that Swedish thing, whatever," remember it's about good tunes, not good timing. The Sounds' Dying to Say This to You from way back in 2006 is the real, glossy, catchy, sexy thing. Hear for yourself when the group comes to town on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the Fillmore at 8 p.m. Admission is $22.50; call 346-6000 or visit for more info. Eric Davidson

Tue., Sept. 18, 8 p.m.
