Sun Airway at Johnny Brenda's

Sun Airway, the dreamy new pop project from Philadelphia's Jon Barthmus, who formerly fronted Beatley indie-band the A-Sides, plays its first show ever at Johnny Brenda's tonight. The trippy "Infinity" is below, and there are a bunch of shimmering songs up on the band's MySpace page from the forthcoming Nocturne Of Exploded Crystal Chandelier, including the fetching "Put the Days Away," in which Barthmus sounds like a psychedelicized Julian Casablancas. I wish Barthmus (that's him with the Cokes) and his bandmate Patrick Marsceill would take that creepy picture of a unicorn cat down from their web site, but otherwise there's nothing to object to about this (already) Pitchfork-approved electro-indie band. Worth checking locals Ravens & Vultures and Eat You Birthday Cake open the show tonight at JB's.
