The Poison Control Center

Posted by Andre Perry | Mar 1, 2011 | Arts & Entertainment

w. Land of Blood and Sunshine, Mumfords, Birth Rites – $6
Friday, April 1 – Blue Moose Tap House

One part Pavement indie-rock enthusiasts and one part Elephant Six psych-pop geniuses, The Poison Control Center is one of the best rock and roll bands in the state of Iowa. Sad Sour Future, their 2010 album, was like a kitchen sink–full of hit-worthy nuggets. At 17 tracks long it was wonderfully indulgent and expansive, showcasing the whims of the band’s four inventive songwriters. Though they had long been revered in their own state, Sad Sour Future announced the PCC’s arrival on a national level. They followed its release by hitting the road for a year-long, never-ending tour, pushing back from one coast to the other and back again. On the heels of their best record yet the band brings their tour-honed chops back to Iowa City to celebrate the Mission Creek Festival.
