It’s been a big year for Memphis, Tennessee rockers The Band Camino, who signed with Elektra Records in May of this year (yeah, bands still sign with majors) and put out the tryhard EP after a couple of independent releases. They performed at Lollapalooza, after which grammy.com named them a “breakout act,” they’ve been called “rock’s next big thing” by Billboard, and now they’re playing two sold-out shows at the El Rey Theatre. They’re working hard and the “Honest” single and “Daphne Blue” video are worth checking out if you’re a fan of alt-rock with giant hooks. Similarly-minded Toronto rockers Valley also play, for those lucky enough to get in.

The Band Camino plays with Valley at 8:30 p.m. on Monday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 8 at the El Rey Theatre.
