Sezio Four-Day Weekend

    PETER WOLF CRIER  Minneapolis indie-folk drum and guitar duo Peter Wolf Crier exhibit rare vocal emotion, supported by rolling drums and fuzzed-out guitar. With two albums under their belt, these good ol’ boys transform their heartfelt folk sound into a lo-fi, drunken jam session. (Tanner Cook)

    BIRDS & BATTERIES Coupling a bluesy twist on Radiohead-style rock arrangements with Randy Newman’s earnest keypounding and storytelling, San Francisco’s Birds & Batteries create a dense sound on their first LP Panorama. (TC)

    CHAIRS MISSING This local psych-folk quartet, the side project of Tape Deck Mountain drummer Paul Remund, nails synth-laden ’60s rock with a refreshing confidence. (Paige Pitcock)

    DIRTY GOLD Aside from their sunbaked hair and the bottoms of their Sperry’s, there’s nothing dirty about these internet-famous golden boys from Rancho Bernardo. Their sound pushes the boundaries of surf-pop into a unique medley of Afro-pop drums, funky keyboard stabs, and jangling guitar riffs a la Vampire Weekend.  (PP)

    OREGON BIKE TRAILS Songwriter Zach Yudin revamps the ’60s beach-pop sound with a chillwave twist. Full of sunny vocal harmonies, Oregon Bike Trails’ addition of dream-pop haze makes for some uniquely infectious dance jams. (TC)

    RAFTER Rafter Roberts has been making strides in the shadows of San Diego’s indie scene since 2006 with his brand of R&B dork-pop. (Ren Ebel)

    LORD HURON Lord Huron (aka Los Angeles’ Ben Schneider) combines hazy harmonies and elements of calypso to create something truly beautiful.  Heavy use of natural soundscapes and a careful layering of synth bleeps make for an abstract yet pleasant live experience. (TC)

    WRITER San Diego natives and lovers of ’90s indie rock Writer won a 2011 San Diego Music Award for Best Local Recording for their latest single “Miss Mermaid.” (TC)

    SO MANY WIZARDS Unlike the rapping wizards from Workaholics, LA’s So Many Wizards performs without fake beards and enchanting robes and there’s no trace of a rap rhyme in their zany, prop-aided post-punk. (PP)

    REAL ESTATE Spearheading what has become a movement of breezy, summer-minded indie bands including Surfer Blood and Woods, Real Estate has garnered critical attention since the release of their infectious self-titled debut in 2009. Their headlining performance will be the surefire cure to your chilly, late-autumn blues. (RE)

    BIG TROUBLES Though they share Real Estate’s New Jersey hometown, Big Troubles have refined their own sound — a winning blend of My Bloody Valentine’s piercing shoegaze and Belle and Sebastian’s brisk and bashful pop. (RE)

    LITTLE DEADMAN Little Deadman were booked, according to the Sezio website, “about five minutes after their set at the Tin Can Ale House,” landing them the title of FDW’s band to watch. (RE)
