MMS Concert Preview - Junior Astronomers at 453, 6/5

Charlotte indie quartet Junior Astronomers combine the soaring punk-tinged vocals of Cold War Kids with the tightly-wound musicality of The Strokes. Despite the somber subject matter of "Laid Out", you'll inevitably find yourself pumping your fist, bobbing your head, and tapping your foot to the band's tale of woe. They're hitting the road in support of their forthcoming sophomore album, Body Language, which comes out on Refresh Records on June 9. Catch them with DC bands Collider and California Accent and Philly's Cold Fronts this Monday at 453.
