headlights_tea.jpgOf all the fresh-faced rock and roll upstarts who call Champaign-Urbana home, there are only a handful who have experienced the evasive place called fame. It’s the place where hard work and serendipity meet. Lucky for Headlights, fame has opened the door and waved them through, and lucky for us, they are truly keeping their friends close, and the city they call home closer. Currently halfway through their cross-country tour (which guitarist/vocalist Tristan Wraight chronicles in our Tour Diary), the band bows out of their whirlwind of national acclaim and press tonight to return home for a good old-fashioned indie rock celebration. Join them with guests Evangelicals and Tall Tale tonight at The Canopy Club for the local CD release of their sophomore album, Some Racing, Some Stopping.

The Canopy Club is located at 708 S. Goodwin Ave. in Urbana and is an 18+ venue. Tickets are $10 at the gate and doors open at 8 p.m. for the show at 9:30 p.m.
