ToDo ToDay: Veronica Falls, Film Festivals, and Snow Day Boozin’

In indie-rock circles, fuzzy garage rock was all the rage last year. Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees got national attention, and thousands of young people found their summer soundtrack when Japandroids went on a long, successful tour. This year is poised to be all about dream pop, garage rock’s more sensitive, depressed cousin. The [...]
