Planet Earth is a really mean place, and sometimes just stepping out the door can scar sensitive human beings like us. That's why we need music. It lets us share our feelings while helping to identify the people who aren't total assholes, such as local bands the Humdrums and the Persons.
So yeah, you should come out this Friday at 8 p.m., when these groups visit the Wallflower Gallery for some quiet music with a quiet crowd. The Humdrums are two girls with guitars making soulful indie stuff, and the Persons specialize in spaced-out pop-rock that talks about feeling angry, giddy, and sad. Later, though, a couple of bands that still kinda scare us On a Square and For the Record will make a lot of (good?) noise. Bring earplugs, we guess.
