Brett Newski & the Corruption bills itself as “a band from Saigon, Vietnam,” but before you imagine some sort of Eastern-Western mash-up, know that Newski comes from the exotic environs of ... Milwaukee.

It’s true that the band lived and recorded its album Tiny Victories in Saigon, and that Newski and his collaborators are an international cast – albeit entirely from North America and Europe. But when the band plays Rozz-Tox on May 28, don’t expect any divergence from poppy Western guitar rock. Outside of lyrics based on travels and life abroad, the influence of southeast Asia, Newski said in a phone interview last week, is limited to the invigorating hullabaloo of the city.

“It’s indie rock,” Newski said. “We’re not rocking any sitars or anything. But the energy that the city brings that we’re constantly surrounded with I thought translated well into the energy of the album.”
