Power pop flows through Aqueduct shows

| No Comments

022609aque.jpg Dave Terry — the lone man behind the rock moniker Aqueduct — is a pop songwriter, for sure. He dresses it up in a lot of indie-rock cool — particularly his impressive keyboards, which manage to be retro without the saturating irony of so many others who consciously "go retro" — but the carefully structured bones of his songs are made of melody and heartbreak. He's a post-postmodern Big Star, a grungy Howard Jones.

And he's back in town this weekend, part of the Amplify New Music Series, 10 p.m. Friday at Schubas, 3159 N. Southport. Tickets are a measley 10 bucks. The Foundry Field Recordings and Light Pollution open the show.
