The Pauses at Neptunes

with Museum Mouth


Time: 10:00PM

Admission: $7 | 21+

Doors: 8:00PM

The Pauses’ (who prefer that their possessive noun-ing be spelled Pauseses) overall sound is one anchored in complexion and combination, a world where guitars are BFFs with synthesizers, horns, and bells. Tierney Tough’s bright, fresh voice glides just as easily atop the breathy sparkle and agile math of “Go North” as it does the indie-pop sway and post-hardcore torque of “Beyond Bianca.” From the serious, atmospheric mood of “The Migration” and “Pull the Pin” to the lithe, glitchy charm of “Hands Up”. The Pauses got mad range, often in the same song. Rooted in the dynamics and ethos of ’90s indie rock, their sound is a balancing act between rock and electronics, airiness and heft, suppleness and angularity. And their debut album, “A Cautionary Tale” (produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox and Burning Airlines) shows that you can explore without losing your core.

Since the album’s release, The Pauses have released a split 12″, contributed a track to a Jason Noble Benefit Compilation, played multiple festival showcases, invented Interact-O-Vision (a live interactive media show component), had songs featured in Harmonix’s Rock Band and multiple films (see: McSweeney’s “The Love Competition”), and have literally shared the stage (with members filling in as backup musicians) with War on Women, The Posies, Matt Pond PA, Davey Von Bohlen, Jonah Matranga, and John Vanderslice.

The Pauses second full-length “Unbuilding” (also produced by Robbins) will be released in the spring of 2018 on Arctic Rodeo Recordings.
