The Head w/The Dunder Chiefs, Stop Light Observations

When: Thu., Nov. 1, 9 p.m. 2012

Twin brothers Jack and Mike Shaw of the Atlanta-based trio the Head grew up in a family of hard-core pop music fans. "My parents didn't play, but they played great music," Jack says. "They introduced us to the Beatles and R.E.M., and we picked up guitars when we were nine years old." In 2007 while the twins were in high school, they decided to team up with their best friend Jacob Morrell to start writing and performing original material. By their senior year, the trio had connected with Atlanta producer Don McCollister (Indigo Girls, Sister Hazel) and recorded the full-length album Puckered. Jack says Puckered was sort of an experiment, but apparently it was a successful one. In June, they released their second long player Hang On, which was finished during breaks of their second year of college. Spin magazine's review of Hang On declared that the Head had "mastered the beloved science of catchy, toe-tapping melodies plus rich vocal harmonies." —Katie Kimsey THURSDAY
