[CANCELED] The Courtneys, Versing, Newman 

When: Fri., Nov. 3, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $10-$12
There’s been quite a gap between the Courtneys’ 2013 self-titled debut and their recent sophomore album, aptly called The Courtneys II. The Vancouver, British Columbia, trio — that’s Classic, Cute and Crazy Courtney to you — has said they’ve been gradually chipping away at the songs on their second LP for four years, and even though this new album is longer than its predecessor, it certainly feels like a tighter collection, delivering a fuzzy amalgam of power pop, shoegaze and the purr of Goo-era Sonic Youth. Since that first album, the Courtneys have extended their reach to Europe, attracting an overseas following with the help of New Zealand indie label Flying Nun Records. If that’s not proof that witty, pop-culture-literate songs about Keanu Reeves (“I would pine after you until the point I break”) and the campy, fashion-forward horror of The Lost Boys crosses geographical boundaries, I don’t know what is.
