Mother Falcon, Porch Lights, Lake Island

When: Tue., Sept. 16, 7-10 p.m. 2014

When your band is made up of roughly 20 people who are all playing their hearts out—and not just acting as stage filler on tambourine or backup-dancer duty—all you can do is go big, and that's exactly what Austin, Texas-based band Mother Falcon did. What started out as a jam session between high school friends who were burned out from their classical cello training turned into a veritable rock orchestra, featuring violin, saxophone, percussion, guitar, piano, accordion and more. And Mother Falcon has the sound to match the power of such an ensemble; as heard on the band's sophomore album, 2013's You Knew, it can jump from sleepy to grand and dizzying in moments but is always keenly crafted and intricate. Local acts Porch Lights and Lake Island will begin the show. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
