Free Electric State, Saint Solitude, Birds & Arrows

When: Sat., Sept. 4, 10 p.m. 2010

Asheville's Saint Solitude is a band in constant transition. In fact, this will be one of the last shows with the current lineup before songwriter Dup Crosson moves to Massachusetts. Balancing lyrics that are honest to the point of vulnerability with confidently original guitar work, Saint Solitude's Journal of Retreat is a fine specimen of educated pop rock. Pete and Andrea Connolly of Birds and Arrows' primary topic is their marriage, which the duo's songs explore without restraint or sensationalism. Folk-rockers with sing-along hooks a-plenty, the Connollys have been recently paired with cellist Josh Starmer, whose contributions range from mellow melancholia to uplifting swells. Free Electric State plays hard-hitting indie rock reminiscent of the mid-90s. Picture Jawbox sitting on a bull in the heather—or the Breeders revisited.—Corbie Hill
