Taking inspiration from now-nostalgic bands like The Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys, Flagstaff's False North offer up tunes that feel familiar on their debut release, Burning Fast. Up-tempo, distorted grooves instantly hook with contrasting crooning lyrics to cool everything down a bit. Now on tour through Arizona, False North will be stopping into Tucson's Sky Bar (536 N. Fourth Ave.) to deliver those jams in person.

The show kicks off with local support from The Rifle (whose sun-drenched Spill EP came out on Some Weird Sin Records late last year) and The Desert Beats for an indie-centric bill. The free 21-and-over event begins at 9 p.m. Thursday, July 7.
