Above: Up-and-coming indie trio Middle Kids just released their self-titled EP (including the track “Edge of Town”), and this week the Australian band will embark on a North American tour that eventually will see them open up for Cold War Kids. (And, later in the spring, Ryan Adams in their homeland.) They do a headlining date on Saturday at the Echo — it’s an early show with Raw Fabrics opening. Tickets.
