Pomegranates, Shake it Like a Caveman 

When: Fri., Oct. 8 2010
Price: $5
Cincinnati-based art-poppers Pomegranates swing through Charleston this weekend in support of their upcoming album One of Us. The show at the Tin Roof is the Pomegranates’ first-ever gig in town, but drummer Jacob Merritt has been down before and has been hyping the Holy City to fellow bandmates Joey Cook, Isaac Karns, and the newest edition, Daniel Lyon. Merritt points out their fun-loving energy on stage plays a major role in providing the audience with a great time and with Cook, Karns, and Lyon swapping guitar, bass, and key roles it makes for a fun show to watch. One of Us is a cohesive work that shares elements of Bradford Cox’s Deerhunter and Joy Division. Cook and Karns take you “out there” with their psychedelic tangents, while Merritt keeps you “here” with consistent rhythm work. One of Us is not all space-guitar over rhythm; they bring some lovable, melodic guitar and keyboard sequences with catchy vocals. The band worked with producer TJ Lipple. The first single, “Prouncer,” is a prime example of their long-standing ability to produce pop music that retains its indie cred. “Anywhere You Go” is a steady build of dizzying keys and repetitive vocals that culminates in an all-out psych jam with a cymbal-crashing rhythm. One-man band Shake it Like a Caveman plays on the deck before Pomegranates hit the main stage at 10 p.m. —Dustin J. Pitts
