Bio: Amos The Transparent can go from six-part a cappella harmonies and handclaps to four across the front balls-out guitar rock in the flick of a pick, and that’s the beauty of them.

Friday 10, Amos the Transparent, 9pm, $5. Jian Ghomeshi of CBC’s ‘Q’ called them the Canadian Wilco. Holy Crap! I have a feeling that is like being called the ‘next Bob Dylan’ back in the sixties, you know, a blessing and a curse… And yes, there is definitely some Wilco here, but there is also a lot more Amos…The tunes range from catchy & fun to thoughtful and provocative, they bear up under repeat listens, and remind me of not just roots rockers like Wilco but also of indie pop like the Shins, Radiohead, Iron and Wine, Bon Iver or even hyper-local acts like Barn or Brad Sucks. Apparently known for high energy live shows and boasting seven members, Amos may be hard to contain on the Branch’s tiny stage—they have chosen to bill it as an acoustic show, a prospect made even more interesting by the fact that their music includes keys (Accordian? Here's hoping!) and strings (Mike Yates on cello!) They are also offering a low ticket price (just $5), a bonus that is surprising and exciting for a band that gets regular play on alt rock radio stations across Canada…I guess that means that they want a full house…I don’t think we will disappoint them, do you?
