Local Love: Moviola

Artist: Moviola Song: "Rudy"

Here's another band playing outside Surly Girl Saloon for this Saturday's Here Comes Your Weekend Parking Lot Blowout. Dead Knowledge, Moviola's 2007 opus, was one of the most inviting local releases of recent years. Every well-worn track beckoned you farther inside the record fiends' world, but perhaps the true jumpoff point, after a woozy instrumental ("Iuka Ravine") and a friendly hello ("Akron to Oakland"), was "Rudy." Led by the same kind of piano line that helped drive Dixie down, the tale of late-night campus wandering strikes the most pleasant of summertime chords. See them at 8:15 Saturday.
