Longtime Sonoma County indie rock outfit the Velvet Teen
released their latest album, All Is Illusory
, last month, and guess what? It’s great. The band’s first full-length record in nearly a decade has them at their best, packed with high-energy rock and roll, heartfelt piano ballads and euphoric pop tracks. For the past two months, the trio has been on the road, touring the country in support of the new LP, and this weekend they finally come home and perform with other local favorites Trebuchet and OVVN on Aug. 22 at the Phoenix Theater, 201 Washington St., Petaluma. 8pm. $10. 707.762.3565.
