Grouplove, the Reubens

[INDIE POP] In 2011, Grouplove splashed onto the scene with the sugary single “Tongue Tied” and, somewhere between the 43 weeks it spent atop Billboard’s Alternative Chart, became the tune of choice for advertising masterminds of all stripes. Apple, Glee, Chevrolet and, most recently, Clos du Bois wine have paired up their brands with the whimsical be-bopping of the breakout SoCal quintet. But Grouplove has acted quickly to shed looming one-hit wonder status, with the release of its sophomore album, Spreading Rumors, last month. Following a set at Star Theater on Wednesday, Grouplove and supporting act the Reubens make a stop at the Alberta Rose for an acoustic rendition of the new tunes. But be warned: The show might give you a sudden desire to buy a Chevy, a bottle of wine and an iPod—all at the same time.
