Boston’s Pretty & Nice actually got their start in Burlington, Vt., where musician Holden Lewis met engineer and musician Jeremy Mendicino in 2004 and the two recorded the debut album “Pink & Blue.” In 2008, Pretty & Nice launched their critically acclaimed full-length album “Get Young,” earning rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork, AV Club, MTV Hive, National Public Radio’s All Songs Considered and more. This led to touring and sharing stages with the likes of the Get Up Kids, Miniature Tigers, the Thermals, Title Tracks (John Davis from Q and not U) and Built to Spill, along with being thrown into the musical chaos that is South by Southwest. The band has since gone back into the studio to record its 2013 album “Golden Rules for Golden People,” which is already gaining traction among indie fans. Pretty & Nice perform at Strange Matter with Romesco, Floodwall and Imaginary Sons on Wednesday, June 5, at 9 p.m. strangematterrva.com.
