Tonight at the Independent Media Center, Modern Skirts, hailing from Athens, Georgia, will perform as openers for Nashville indie-rockers Parachute Musical and local atmospheric rock duo Common Loon. The power-poppy Modern Skirts, gearing up to release their sophomore album this fall, recently had their single “Motorcade” featured on a Q Magazine sampler, and will be opening for REM this summer in Amsterdam.
Be sure to catch them tonight before it costs you more than one of those creepy new fives to see them.
The Independent Media Center is located at 202 S. Broadway Ave. in Urbana. The show starts at 8 p.m., admission is five dollars, and is all-ages and alcohol-free.
