Las Vegas indie rock comes to the Winchester Cultural Center with performances by Twin Brother with Most Thieves at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, at the center, 3130 S. McLeod Drive, just north of Desert Inn Road.

Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 the day of the show and can be purchased at the Winchester Cultural Center front desk or online. The concert is a part of Winchester’s Young Originals Concert Series. 

Twin Brother – consisting of Adam Grill and Sonny Saipale, guitars; Tyler McKusick, guitar and keyboards; Niko Saipale, bass and sequencer; and Brian Scanlan, drums – brings its mastery of electronic effects, clean guitar sound and layered, reverb-wrapped voices to the Winchester stage for the first time. The band’s first CD, “Best Frenzy,” which was released in June 2011, was well reviewed locally by Las Vegas City Life and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. British reviewer Richard Warrell rated “Best Frenzy” “superb” and called it “a genuine breath of fresh air.”  

The members of Most Thieves have been performing together since 2008 and they list their main influence as “growing up in Las Vegas.” The band, named “best breakout band” by Vegas Seven in July, brings along Most Thieves fresh off a European tour. Some members of the band, made up of Eric Koch, vocals/guitar; Rob Whited, drums; Bobby Lee Parker, guitar; Steve Bonacci, bass; and Sam Daniel, keyboards, lapsteel, guitar and vocals, are the road crew for The Killers and have opened for the locally grown powerhouse numerous times. Recently signed, this is sure to be the first of a long line of concerts for Most Thieves and likely one of the smallest venues they will play for a while.  

The next scheduled concert in the Young Originals Concert Series will feature Kid Meets Cougar with Brett Bolton and Courtney Carroll on Friday, Feb. 24.
