((City on Film)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

The City on Film is the solo project of Chicago's Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes, Sky Corvair, Friction). This is quieter than any of his older bands, sounding more similar to his friend Mike Kinsella (American Football, Owen). Nanna strums and sings these delicate songs with a weary worldview and his quirky vocalizations and lyrical hiccups have never been more endearing.

On stage, The City on Film sounds much bigger with help from multiple members and strings. There's really nothing "punk" about this. Nanna is pretty much revered in the Midwest, so if you're from there, or if you like any of his other bands, this is at least worth checking out. Just don't expect it to be Braid. It's decidedly not.
