Healthy dose of "Nu 90s": Lightouts live at Union Hall on September 22

Healthy dose of "Nu 90s": Lightouts live at Union Hall on September 22

Gavin Rhodes claims his band Lighouts is, “like Smashing pumpkins, when they were good.” There is a resemblance in Lightouts thick layered guitar and bass lines, playing in perfect precision, but Lightouts vocalist Greg Nelson’s disciplined tenor is a far cry from the nasal madness of Billy Corgan’s haunts and howls. Lightouts latest single “Eloise Suite” is like an  angsty and fresh walk through a 90s scrapbook, with fuzzy guitars supporting Nelson’s new wave vocal inflections. Catch Lightouts performing on September 22, at Union Hall in Brooklyn. - Ed Guardaro
