Landmarks Ramp Things Up In October, Play Lincoln Hall

2013_18_Landmarks.jpg October is a busy month for Landmarks. The local psych rockers started it off by sitting for a podcast with Notes and Bolts and playing a show at the Empty Bottle, and the band’s Daytrotter session is expected to drop soon—it features two tracks that the group has yet to release. This series of feats is coming to a climax next week when they take the stage at Lincoln Hall.

The band will be opening for New Jersey’s carefree pop act Real Estate, but we get the feeling it will be the other way around someday soon. Landmarks has seen some solid momentum this year with the release of a few singles—“Cuscutta” and “Overflown” were featured on the Public House Sound Recording project back in May—and they don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon.

The Lincoln Hall show will be the largest venue we’ve seen them perform at (they tend to play intimate venues and DIY spaces) so we’re curious to see how their hazy rhythms and dreamy vocals translate on a big stage. It’s easy to get lost in the daze, so we expect it to be good. If you haven’t heard their stuff yet, check it out on Landmarks’ Bandcamp page.

Landmarks and Real Estate play Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Lincoln Hall, 2424 N Lincoln, 9 p.m., $20, 21+
