Neon Indian, Dream Joints – Belly Up Tavern
Neon Indian is the electronic project of singer-songwriter Alan Palomo. To prove not all old relationships are bad: an ex-girlfriend played inspiration to some aspects of Neon Indian–she came up with the band name and is the subject of the song “Should Have Taken Acid With You.” More info.

For $5, you can see indie rock duo Family Mansion from Portland play with bands from San Diego and Mexico City. Sounds like a deal to us! More info.
