Underlying urgency: Total War makes melodic indie rock with an inescapable sense of movement, reminiscent of bands like Cursive (thanks to frontman Jeremy Rose's gruff and affective baritone). The local trio plays Emerald Lounge on Friday, March 1.

The band visits The Grey Eagle on Tuesday, March 5, the same day its self-titled debut hits stores. Photo by Carlos van Hijfte
