[image-1]Over the last 10 years Brooklyn-based, Elephant 6-style indie-pop band The Ladybug Transistor — led by main singer/songwriter Gary Olson — have dabbled in various of trippy, organic, vocal harmony-laden forms of pop (they call it “folky psychedelic classic-pop”) and survived several significant lineup adjustments (most recently, longtime drummer San Fadyl passed away in April at his home in Switzerland).

They visit Charleston this Wednesday (Oct. 3) with a set at the Village Tavern in support of their sixth studio album, Can’t Wait Another Day (Merge), which features contributions from members of Aislers Set, Architecture in Helsinki, The Clientele, Jens Lekman, Kevin Barker (Currituck Co., Vetiver), Heather McIntosh (Circulatory System, Instruments), Roy Nathanson (Lounge Lizards/Jazz Passengers), and others.

San Fran reverb/reggae pop band Still Flyin’ open at 10 p.m.
