Such is the popularity of L.A. band Wand that they’re playing two consecutive nights at The Echo, on Thursday and also Friday. Musically, they play a sort of dreamy, synthy indie pop that manages to retain a classic, familiar feel while not sounding at all dated. That’s confirmed by a quote they put on their Facebook page which reads, “Isn’t it funny to be a skeleton, playing a new song like it’s an old one.” Laughing Matter is their latest album and it’s chock-full of quality tunes, including the hypnotic and slightly off-putting “Scarecrow. Keep your eye on them.

Wand plays at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 9 and Friday, January 10 at The Echo.
