The Clean + Dump + Vermillon Sands

The Clean first appeared on record with 1981’s “Tally Ho,” a near-perfect rallying cry anchored by an organ drone straight out of the Modern Lovers’ playbook. The humble single launched an eminent record label (Flying Nun) and led to a stream of like-minded music by both Clean off-shoots and stylistic progeny (Yo La Tengo, Pavement). Of course, some of the best work of this type has come from the Clean itself—including this past year’s excellent LP Mister Pop. Also playing tonight is Dump, featuring Yo La Tengo's James McNew.
