Power pop flows through Aqueduct shows

SHARE Power pop flows through Aqueduct shows

Dave Terry the lone man behind the rock moniker Aqueduct is a pop songwriter, for sure. He dresses it up in a lot of indie-rock cool particularly his impressive keyboards, which manage to be retro without the saturating irony of so many others who consciously “go retro” but the carefully structured bones of his songs are made of melody and heartbreak. He’s a post-postmodern Big Star, a grungy Howard Jones.

And he’s back in town this weekend, part of the Amplify New Music Series, 10 p.m. Friday at Schubas, 3159 N. Southport. Tickets are a measley 10 bucks. The Foundry Field Recordings and Light Pollution open the show.
