Love, She Wrote and Fallen from the Sky

Pat yourself on the back for attending Saturday's early-evening, all-ages extravaganza at Revolution. It's sponsored by Music Saves Lives, a California-based group that aims to "create opportunities for people to save lives with simple contributions, and to teach the facts about the effects of what they contribute to." In other words, the organization puts on shows whose proceeds benefit lifesaving charities such as blood banks and bone-marrow registries. And beyond the music, a number of scene-related companies are sponsoring the event, among them Killbrand Clothing and Bad Cat Amps, so expect stickers, display tables, and other goodies that'll make lifesaving pretty fun.

One of two headliners is Love, She Wrote, a Fort Lauderdale-based trio that claims influence from classic Nineties early emo/pop-rock acts such as Saves the Day, the Get Up Kids, and Jimmy Eat World. Yay for melody and nuance — there's no useless screaming here, just whip-tight tunes with enough studio polish to appeal to fans of the kinds of bands regularly featured in Alternative Press. In fact the group has garnered a writeup in January's issue of that magazine.

Coheadlining is Fallen from the Sky, a Boca quintet signed to hardcore stable Eulogy. Accordingly, the band's sound is harder-edged, with gruff vocals but still an uncanny knack for hooks. Sort of like beauty meets beast, tracks such as "Out of Control" are music to the ears of people who miss thoughtful, hardcore-tinged, skate-friendly punk.
