RTB2, Nervous Curtains, Ice Eater at LaGrange

With their newest album, 2, out on the streets, Denton rock two-piece RTB2 will headline a very well-balanced set at LaGrange. You have Fort Worth's Ice Eater, a promising five-piece that blends the bounce of Talking Heads with the melodies of Sting's early solo records. Then it's Dallas' Nervous Curtains, the dystopian pop trio that's received plenty of accolades this year for the LP Fake Infinity. And who could pass up a chance to see Ryan Thomas Becker rip up a stage? Get there early and you won't have to bar-hop looking for a better bill.
