Midlake, Radiant, Pleasant Grove
If you've been making lame excuses to avoid checking out the renovated Granada, then Friday's amazing local bill should render your excuses null and void. To drive the point home, the lineup is so crowded with talent that Dallas mainstay Pleasant Grove is relegated to an opening slot. Arrive early enough to catch the band's newest material, which delves further into the rock territory that The Art of Leaving only hinted at, along with up-and-coming Brit-pop outfit The Hourly Radio, and stick around for Radiant's made-for-radio pop-rock and Midlake's otherworldly live show, filled with background videos and a zillion synthesizers.
