SLCene Suggests: Rogue Wave at Urban Lounge

by on June 11, 2013

ROGUE WAVE, URBAN LOUNGE, Wednesday, June 12, 9 p.m., $16

Apparently you CAN go home again, at least when it comes to record companies. Oakland pop-rockers Rogue Wave released their excellent 2004 album Out of the Shadow on SubPop before hooking on to Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records and then Vagrant for a few releases. Now, the band led by singer/guitarist Zach Rogue is back based on Seattle’s SubPop for Descended Like Vultures, a collection that veers from sounding at times like classic rock, and others like pure power-pop. It’s the first time Rogue has gathered all the members of the band into the studio to record–Rogue Wave relied more on traded files and tapes before this latest collection–and the cohesiveness shines through. Koala Temple opens the show.
