Jeff Hart & the Ruins, Sea Cow

When: Fri., Feb. 3, 10 p.m. 2012

Jeff Hart released a couple of albums in the '90s, led a few bands, and then popped back up in December with his first solo disc in 16 years, Ghosts of the Old North Coast. A tuneful blend of '60s British Invasion melodicism and '80s new wave spunk (think Elvis Costello or Graham Parker), his music moves with an enduring heartland spirit somewhere between John Hiatt and Jay Farrar. There's a no-frills simplicity to his rock that amplifies its earnest appeal, kind of like Tom Petty. Sea Cow opens the free show at 10 p.m. —Chris Parker
