Show Crush: Garvy J. / Parlour Bells / The Dears at BMH tomorrow

March 29, 2011

The folks over at the Brighton Music Hall continue their policy of bringing local talent in to support national headliners, and that’s certainly something we here at BBC can get behind. Sure, we love when shows are made up of 100% Boston bands, but a big touring band brings in some people that haven’t yet been exposed to the awesome bands we have right here at home, and it’s nice to see some of our friends in front of those audiences. Tomorrow night, passionate soulful Canadian pop exports The Dears are set to close out the evening; they just had a good run at SXSW and have been getting some play on WFNX, who are co-presenting this show.

Getting the show started will be Parlour Bells, whose dark pop lounge crooning comes straight from the Devil’s own nightclub. Singer Glenn DiBenedetto creates a film noir version of the world that seduces audiences into a black rapture, setting them up for a killing stroke by guitarist Nate Leavitt. Garvy J. and the Secret Pockets of Hope and Resistance will fill the middle slot with powerfully melodic, politically charged blues rock. Josh Hager, aka Garvy J., aka The Elevator Drops founder, is a pretty hot commodity, having been sought out over the years to record with such acts as Devo, The Rentals, Weezer and more. They released their first single, “War Is Over…Again” a few weeks ago and are hard at work on an album. Get there early and show them some love.
