Chicago's Twin Peaks play Mr. Roboto Project Friday night, August 15, bringing their fuzzy blend of garage rock with them.
The band, essentially four twenty-somethings who know how to rock, released their new album Wild Onion Aug. 5 via Grand Jury Records. Wild Onion is their first release since their 2013 LP Sunken. The first single "I Found A New Way" embodies the lo-fi and garage rock tendencies that are integral to Twin Peaks sound. On and off tour until early November, the band will play Pitchfork Music Festival, Pygmalion, Fun Fun Fun Fest and others along the way. If Twitter is an indication of what a band is like, Twin Peaks seem like a bunch of fun guys. When they were recently in New York, they tweeted, "almost fought Michael Cera last night. #NewYorkAmIRight"
The band plays Friday at Mr. Roboto Project with The Lemons and Dumplings. 8 p.m. 5106 Penn Ave., Bloomfield. $8. All Ages. www.therobotoproject.org
