Staff Pick: Captain of Industry at Skully's

If Captain of Industry sounds like just the sort of indie rock band you'd expect to hear circa 2002, it's because the Dayton combo has been slugging it out for almost a decade. They've certainly evolved in that time, though.

This band's underlying melodic pep has never wavered even as they've wound through the anxious spasms of Les Savy Fav and the melancholy cartoon sounds of Super Furry Animals. They're equally equipped for getting angry on the dance floor and feeling emotionally conflicted about it the next day.

Joining them at Skully's on Saturday: Way Yes, The Receiver and Pretty & Nice.
