Bowerbirds, Midtown Dickens, Veelee

When: Fri., April 9, 9:30 p.m. 2010

All Music Guide critic Stewart Mason combined the two words that might best describe Bowerbirds' music. Mason wrote that their music contained a certain "unfeigned positivity." For all the fuss that's been made over the band's ecologically aware lyrics and of the elegant acoustic folk music they play, it's the unflagging sense of optimism that makes them affecting. It's not to say that Bowerbirds are always cheerful—more often they seem patient and reflective. And it's not that the world these songs inhabit is perfect. But they sing that maybe it could be. Local favorites Midtown Dickens and Veelee open. —Bryan Reed
