There's something really youthful and nostalgic about Miniature Tigers' music, which plays off of the sounds of late '90s alt rock and applies a modern indie pop edge to it. Their debut Cruel Runnings operates on this blend of musical energies, with lyrics depicting, among other things, teenage romance and memories of warm summer nights with friends. Who doesn't enjoy something listening to something fun and different once in a while? Fans of other indie pop groups like Girls and Real Estate might find something to like in Miniature Tigers, and so for you discerning audiophiles, you'd be entirely remiss if you were to forgo this four-piece's show at the Constellation Room with Total Slacker and Flashlights. Your spring concert season has already begun, so go out and take in a cool show tonight.
