Artist of the day: A Brilliant Lie




Orlando indie pop-punk group A Brilliant Lie will appeal to any fans of the Joy Formidable and Paramore, not only for their catchy, edgy songs, but also for their passionate live shows.

Singer-guitarist Tara Lightfoot’s warble is not unlike that of Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, and her bandmates — Tim Cook-Berry, James Christopher Lane and Zach Teman — surround her with an intense aural environment. And if that’s not enough to convince you to check them out, their first EP, Regarding Harry Lime, features a track called Death Don’t Pony Up For Gas, which gets its name from an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Awesome.

On Thursday, the group will perform at Crowbar alongside Drake and Sofia. Tickets are $8. For details, click here.
