Any band that writes rock songs about robots automatically gets a vote of confidence from me. Daysleeper not only show off a nerdy streak, they weld together some unusual sonic textures for their ilk. Not enough rock bands tap into wind instruments to enhance their sound, but Daysleeper gives their songs a vintage proggy vibe with spurts of saxophone. At points, it's as if Collective Soul took a page from Van Der Graaf Generator. Between the fingerpicked acoustic moments and the bright stadium guitars woven into their repertoire, Daysleeper cover a lot of area in rounding out their sound. They'll play Double Door this tonight, December 9th, along with the folk-pop stylings of Buckman Page, the quirky songstressings of Jen Gloeckner, and Janelle Kroll's alt-R&B. Doors open at 8 p.m., the show starts at 9, tickets are $5 for general admission, and the show is 21 and over.
