This Friday, Brooklyn quintet Here We Go Magic will grace Burlington with their mellow, ambient folk-pop tunes. I first saw HWGM open for Broken Social Scene last December in Montreal, and while their sound didn’t necessarily translate to the massive space that is Metropolis, I came away thinking how much I’d love to see them again in a more intimate venue.

Friday’s show at the Higher Ground’s Showcase Lounge should provide just that. And as an added bonus, AroarA, a new project by Andrew Whiteman (of BSS and Apostle of Hustle fame) and his wife Ariel, is opening the show. For those of you smart enough to have been at the BSS show at Higher Ground last fall, Ariel sang many of the female parts, and did so convincingly. I’m really excited to see what she can do with her own material. Late Update: Sadly, AroarA has been dropped from the bill. Local acts Parmaga and The Engine Ear will be filling in.

Here’s Here We Go Magic performing “Fangela” from their recent appearance at Coachella:
