INDIE ROCK | Bogues

by

comment

Vineyard Community Space has long been a refuge for bands that skirt the lines between indie rock and emo influences. For musicians like Tennessee-based solo artist Bogues, the result is mature songwriting with a post-emo sheen. Devoid of the abject whining and histrionic tendencies that plagued much of emo music in the aughts, Bogues's post-emo songs retain the moody, introspective yet highly expressive qualities that made the genre so engaging in the first place. Armed with a jangly, reverb-laden guitar, he does battle with his own psyche on the freshly released EP "Mulligan." The song constructions say folk music, but when the ardent opining explodes into a full-throated wail, it says something else. Carpool, Cu-Cu, and Gallon of Milk fill out the bill.

Bogues performs Tuesday, October 24, at Vineyard Community Space, 836 South Clinton Avenue. 7 p.m. $5 suggested donation. facebook.com/vineyardcommunityspace; facebook.com/boguesdude.
