Blind Pilot comes to Club Cafe

I've written before about the recent lack of quality shows at Club Cafe. To be honest, I only half-pay attention to the venue's schedule anymore since it's mostly mediocre acts no one cares about.

That changes on April 1, when Portland, Oregon pop duo Blind Pilot rolls into town. The band's album 3 Rounds and a Sound was released last year to substantial acclaim. Its songs combine gentle pop grooves with a bit of the Avett Brothers' up-tempo folk style. NPR named the record one of the year's 10 best debut albums.

The band went on a bike tour last year by themselves, but now they've got a van to accommodate their larger backing band. They played SXSW last week, and they're playing shows almost every day leading up to their show at Club Cafe on April Fool's Day.

Blind Pilot maintain their own blog, featuring photos of postcards they've been mailing from the road (though, unless they're trying to encourage stalkers, they may want to take better care to black out their mailing address!) Find them on myspace at check out the links below.
