The Shifts has a show on 08/06/2015 at 08:00 PM @ The Wandering Goat in Eugene, OR http://www.reverbnation.com/q/61l5jc #concert


“Lyrical garage rock paired with the pop sensibilities of folks like The Shins and Oasis. These folks are the dark and the light, the edge and crowd, seemlessly blending garage, experimental sonics, and accessible lyrical content and chordage. Imagine if Vampire Weekend had a pair and liked to hang out in bad neighborhoods rather than brownstones. There’s something here for everyone across the indie/edge spectrum; soaring craziness for the shoegazers, poppy hooks for the bouncybabies, and a punkish garage flair for the close-cropped pitfolk. A definite get-to-the-show-and-go from me, children.”
