A survey of Lansing's musical landscape


The Plurals release 'An Onion Tied To My Belt' at the Avenue

Since 2007, the Plurals have been a fixture in the Lansing music scene, releasing a string of DIY alt-rock discs on its GTG Records imprint. The three-piece band is back with its third full-length album, “An Onion Tied to My Belt.” The group releases the new record Saturday at the Avenue Café. The album, available on vinyl LP or CD, features 12 hook-driven Midwestern power-trio tunes. Fans of the Pixies, Hüsker Dü or Fugazi may want to check out it out. Through the years, the band has kept its original lineup: Tommy McCord (guitar), Nich Richard (bass) and Hattie Danby (drums) — all share songwriting and lead vocal duties. “An Onion Tied to My Belt” was recorded throughout 2013-2014 in between rigorous coast-to-coast touring across the United States. Opening Saturday’s release show are: Hut Two Hike, Pupppy, O-Face, Summerpunx and James Radick from Small Parks. Lansing power pop group the Stick Arounds will close out the evening.

The Avenue Café, 2021 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. 18 , $5, 7 p.m., Saturday, July 18
