Pop/Rock | Bleeding Rainbow

Rob Garcia and Sarah Everton grew up in Philadelphia as fans of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana, and, apparently, Levar Burton. The married couple started performing as a duo in March of 2008 under the moniker Reading Rainbow. This initial incarnation embraced the burgeoning lo-fi revolution, producing minimalistic indie rock imbued with heavy reverb. After several years of touring and a couple full-length records, the two-piece changed its name and expanded its lineup. Bleeding Rainbow's first studio effort, 2013's "Yeah Right" — also the band's first release on Brooklyn-based label Kanine Records — is a perfect signpost of its continual sonic maturation. Touches of punky psych pop are perfectly balanced by the ever-dreamy, darker side of shoegaze.

Bleeding Rainbow performs Sunday, February 23, 9 p.m. at Bug Jar, 214 Monroe Ave., $8-12, bugjar.com
