Inspired by campgrounds, dead people, and comic books, Drug Rug play feel good indie folk with finger-picking guitar riffs and a Hammond B-3 organ. Having a happy ‘60s pop sound mixed with an indie rock charm, the dueling guitars and vocals of Sarah Cronin and Thomas Allen swoon many with their adorable harmonies. Sounding like The New Pornographers, this duo from Cambridge is like the Sonny and Cher of indie pop. Come hear their catchy songs when they play The Brooklyn Bowl on Jan. 14. Ages 21 and up. drugrug.com.
