Alex Peterson spent years touring with local indie exports Hovvdy and Lomelda while issuing their own heavy guitar music as alexalone. 2021’s ALEXALONEWORLD cemented the band’s right to enter the flooded shoegaze canon, blending melodies and feedback to do right by its world-building name. Peterson’s voice just barely peeks out from the band’s wall of noise, an assured murmur that makes you lean in and listen. Not a full-on drone night, Vegas’ lineup invites skeletal synth-pop, buzzy DIY, and ethereal folk from Felt Out, BluMoon singer-songwriter Égaux Sells, and Portland’s Palm Sunday.
