Dark Dark Dark, A Hawk & A Hacksaw, Pillars & Tongues

When: Wed., Oct. 5, 8 p.m. 2011

There's a Gypsy vibrancy to Dark Dark Dark's tactile chamber pop, helping to ground their ramshackle theatrical sway in a moody sweep of accordions, violins and piano. They exist in a space between Dresden Dolls and DeVotchka, neither as theater geeky as the former nor as bohemian chic as the latter. The organic warmth of their sound and sense of restraint ensure that, even when the arrangements bloom into baroque frills, it still sounds like there's something human beating at the center. Singer, pianist and accordionist Nona Marie Invie's alto flutters and flits atop the creamy swells, recalling the breathy drama of Kate Bush. The excellent A Hawk & A Hacksaw opens, along with Pillars and Tongues. —Chris Parker
