INDIE ROCK | The Appleseed Cast


Hailing from Lawrence, Kansas, The Appleseed Cast summons a "post-rock" sound that thrives on inventive drumming, waves of sweeping guitar arpeggios, and impassioned vocals. Its predominantly guitar-based music has evolved over the years, hailing emo predecessors while carving out its own unique niche. New members have been brought in throughout the band's history, and each has contributed new dimensions to The Appleseed Cast's sonic palette — creating songs full of vitality and energy. The live performances are head-bobbing, emotionally striking displays, filled with an urgency that is heartfelt and honest.

The Appleseed Cast plays with Alberto Alaska and Secret Pizza on Wednesday, October 15, at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $12-$14.;
