GallusFrontman Chris Kelly formed Gallus with the premise of playing simple pop songs with a rock edge. The band had a busy 2012, playing more than 70 shows (including its first Homegrown and an eight-month residency at the Rex) and putting out a debut album,The Sparta Tapes. Since the disc’s release, the group revamped its lineup; joining Kelly and saxophone and keyboard player Sean Mahoney are new band mates Kent Paulsen on drums, Dicky Brooks on bass and Steven James Carlson on guitar. The revised band plans to release an EP, recorded at Sacred Heart, in time for Homegrown, with a full-length following later this year.
