On Monday, pop-tinged California college-rock favorites Young the Giant are unleashing “It’s About Time,” the first single from band’s forthcoming sophomore full-length. That same day, Tennessee YtG enthusiasts can snag tickets for a cozy, intimate, all-ages fan-club show presented by 102.9 The Buzz and Lightning 100 (kind of strange bedfellows, but OK) at The High Watt on Friday, Nov. 8.

Will-call-only tickets go on sale Monday, as previously stated, at noon via the band’s official site. They cost $30, which, you know, seems like a lot of dough to throw down for a High Watt show. But seeing how word on the street is that the band is plotting a Ryman gig for, well, sometime in the near future, maybe 30 bones is a small price to pay to see these giants deliver their timely, youthful sonics in an intimate setting?

Does Young the Giant sound a little bit like a indie rock’s answer to Train or, perhaps more accurately, the next Cold War Kids? Food for thought. Take a listen to a couple of the band’s tunes after the jump and decide for yourself.
