Bridges and Blinking Lights delivered one of last year's best local albums in Standing on the Same Stick, a collection of taut, jaunty indie rock reminiscent of Built to Spill, Centro-matic and mid-period Flaming Lips. B&BL guitarist Marc Montoya also pulls double-duty in local folk-Zeppelins Dove Hunter, who—fingers crossed—will deliver one of our favorite local albums of 2008 when their Stuart Sikes-produced disc finally sees the light of day. (If it were possible to wear out a MySpace song, 45-style, tunes such as "What Turns Inside," "The Shore" and "The Sparrow Spooked the Crow" would have met that fate long ago.)
Expect a packed, sweaty house for this inspired pairing—if you've seen Dove Hunter play the Double Wide before, you know we're serious about the sweat thing. Perennial underdog Doug Burr rounds out the bill with his impeccably crafted country-noir, which left nary a dry eye in the house at his recent AllGood Café appearance.
