Australia’s Pond has a touch of Tame Impala | Concert preview

On the list of bands overdue for a Seattle show, Tame Impala ranks near the top. Following 2012’s star-making “Lonerism,” the Australian psychedelic rock juggernaut was a disappointing no-show at last winter’s Deck the Hall Ball, and hasn’t been heard from since. Tuesday, however, the Tractor Tavern in Ballard hosts Pond, featuring two of Tame Impala’s members. Not to be confused with the ’90s Portland Sub Pop band of the same name, this Pond’s sound — which draws on a colorful array of influences, from glam and Britpop to hallucinatory Krautrock — won’t be mistaken for Tame Impala’s either. Nonetheless, it’s a fun, strange trip worth taking for fans pining for that “Lonerism” follow-up and elusive Northwest tour.

With Doctopus, Peter Bibby. 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the Tractor Tavern, 5213 Ballard Ave. N.W., Seattle; $13 (206-789-3599 or tractortavern.com).
