YOUNG JESUS


Thursday, Nov. 12

Wild Salmon

Doors: 9 p.m.


Young Jesus is a five-piece indie rock band based out of Los Angeles via Chicago. Young Jesus echoes Nick Cave, The Hold Steady, Ian Curtis, Brand New, Built to Spill, and Dinosaur Jr.. With Home, Young Jesus examined the lives of David and Eloise, two addicts/dropouts trying to sort out the immediacies and emotions of being young. Written amidst the band’s own issues of substance abuse and failure and illness, the grungy/folky/indie album reads like a troubled friend’s diary.
