Cheyenne Saloon, Sept. 23

It takes quite a bit of talent to transform a typical saloon into an ambient daydream. Fortunately, Dreamwire has that talent. From the top of their set until the very last strum, the Vegas-based shoegaze act kept a constant flow of melodic tunes surging from the speakers.

Dreamwire was the headlining act in a charity event for Huntington’s Disease awareness. Everyone swayed and watched in an appreciative gloominess as the band played most of the songs from their self-titled debut album. They opened up their set with “Alien”: Amber “Clove” Corby sang like a siren while bandmates Joshua “Lowtone” Stuart and Nathan Geving accompanied with guitars. The band showed off their skills during fan-favorite “City Lights.” It was very impressive to see the band perform in total unison—switching from keyboards to guitars and back as the show progressed. From the intense cymbal-crashing to the other-worldly lyrics, the members of Dreamwire were quite the extraterrestrials.

THE LIKELY LADS: Google them and see: The members of Bangor, Northern Ireland, power-pop trio Two Door Cinema Club look about 17 years old. But they’re all over the age of 21, which means they won’t have any difficulty getting into the Hard Rock Hotel for their Sept. 26 show at Body English ($25)—conversely, it means that they’re probably too young to have heard the 1980s-era U.K. bands that their jangly, upbeat guitar pop closely resembles—Prefab Sprout, Aztec Camera and the Housemartins, among others.
