Dirty Little Heaters, Jews & Catholics, Love Craft

When: Fri., Aug. 6, 10 p.m. 2010

The acts on this bill cover the full spectrum of rock and electronica, with a solid midpoint, too. At the rock extreme is the attack blues of the Dirty Little Heaters, which possesses a grunge crunch, yet none of the latter genre's self-pity. Reese McHenry is a fiercely confident vocalist, like a focused Janis Joplin. Love Craft, which makes fresh electro-pop ballads, possesses an unmistakable mid-80s radio quality, but the tunes rarely succumb to cliché. Tonight's synthesis of these styles, or their middle ground, is Jews and Catholics, who populate a drum machine landscape with big guitars, rattling upright bass and gothic post-punk swagger. . —Corbie Hill
