Young Fresh Fellows

Reached recently in the water-logged compound of the Gibson guitar showroom that is his place of employment, Young Fresh Fellows guitarist Kurt Bloch confirms that reports of that band's demise are premature. Though tonight's show is their one and only appearance of 2011, Bloch, frontman Scott McCaughey, Tad Hutchinson, and Jim Sangster have been toiling away on a new record and have no plans of giving up the gleeful, wry-witted pop-rock act they started back in 1981. Expect priceless stage banter, nearly flawless musicianship, and a ripping opening set from Sangster's other rock-oriented outfit, the Tripwires. HANNAH LEVIN
