Show preview 


Indiscretion Saturday, March 27 Radio Radio For the band Indiscretion, formerly Tigris, a lineup that includes two doctors and a pilot makes scheduling difficult at best and a tour next to impossible. “So since all we can do is play two shows in a row, we figured we’d call that our spring tour!” said band founder and guitarist Joel Conner. The “tour,” in support of the band’s limited-run first album, Stunning, begins Saturday, March 27, at Radio Radio at 9 p.m. (with Beatles tribute band Yesterday and Today and The Fairmont Girls) and concludes the next day at 9:30 p.m. at Birdy’s, after the comedy revue. Conner founded the band a year and a half ago based on his longtime interest in showcasing female musicians. He met three of the members — bassist Emily MacNeill, bassist Carrie Ann Conley Michalski and drummer Cindy Myers — through contacts where he works at the Department of Health, and recruited his old friend Amy Jackson on keyboards. All of them swap around roles on vocals. The album showcases a variety of styles with influences from The Who, The Clash and the Go-Gos most prominently featured. It can best be described as poppy punk, but even that doesn’t fully cover it. “A lot of the stuff is short and punk, and some of it has four and five part harmony. So it’s tough to see,” Conner said. “We have a song on the CD that’s three-quarter time, kind of Celtic folk music, and we have another song not on the CD called ‘Fuck You.’ So it’s all over the place. We’ve gotten really tight. Punk with a keyboard! Two basses going at the same time! You don’t hear this stuff a lot.” Stunning will be available at Indiscretion shows, through Borders bookstores and at the band’s Web site at
