Melboune’s own The Temper Trap is coming to town tonight and we’re pretty sure you should be there, mate. After winning Best Band of 2010 in their native Australia, Temper Trap was nominated in Britain for Best International Breakthrough Band in 2011, and 2012 finds them with a dreamy new self-titled album (released in June) and coming to visit the Fillmore in beautiful downtown Silver Spring tonight. If you haven’t heard “Sweet Disposition,” their most popular single and a song that is both gorgeous and pervasive in a Sigur-Rosy kind of way, you must have been traveling on the Mars Rover for the past two years. Since the Snallygaster Beer Festival at the Yards ends at 5 p.m., that gives you plenty of time to Metro on up for an evening of Aussie chillaxing.
Blending soaring, hypnotic vocals with driving bass lines and shimmery synthesizers, Temper Trap promises to grace the stage with some space-rock cool, so come on down to see what the best band in Australia sounds like. Hopefully they’ll toss in a lot of banter in that killer accent. Tickets are still available HERE.
