Silversun Pickups Power into Roxian Theatre (2/23/23)

Silversun Pickups formed in Los Angeles, California, in 2000 right around when their alternative-rock forebears the Smashing Pumpkins were breaking up. They released their debut album, Carnavas, in 2006. Songs such as “Lazy Eye,” with its driving guitars, heady vocals, and screaming, picked up the alt-rock relay that the Pumpkins’ frontman Billy Corgan had been carrying. Silversun Pickups later received a Best New Artist nomination at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards. Their music has been featured in popular video games series, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The quartet’s 2019 album Widow’s Weeds was produced by Garbage drummer Butch Vig, arguably best known for producing Nirvana’s sophomore breakthrough album Nevermind. The group’s latest album release, also produced by Vig, is last year’s Physical Thrills. Silversun Pickups will perform at the Roxian Theatre. 8 p.m. 425 Chartiers Ave., McKees Rocks. (C.M., R.H.)
