After spending weeks in the studio recording the debut record Here In the USA (to be released on June 11), RANA returns to the stage with a brand new sonic approach to their already captivating, energetic live set. Combining the liveliness of Talking Heads, the evasiveness of the Velvet Underground, the grace of Tom Petty, and the integrity of Wilco, RANA delivers the making of a new breed of classic American rock and roll Saturday, May 11 at the prestigious Mercury Lounge (217 E Houston St., 18 and over).

Also sharing the bill is NYC rock staple Miracle of 86. In their own words, "We are all in our 20s and all like playing American rock n’ roll, dirty and clean, with two guitar parts and a driving rhythm section and good lyrics and passionate singing. We don’t own hair gel or guitar techs."

Lenola, Philadelphia's lo-fi answer to the Flaming Lips begins the night.
