Acute's brand of Fuzz Guitar Pop Comes to Boston

One of the best pop rock albums I have heard this year comes from Acute - a tight Los Angeles band that takes their smooth riffs and guitar fuzz very seriously.

ARTIST OF THE DAY:
ACUTE



The New Album: Arms Around A Stranger

The band is doing their own thing - but their sound could have descended downward on the same tree of life that birthed Fastball, Everclear and Weezer! Those are some impressive comparisons - and Acute can hold up their end of the bargain. The band plays T.T. the Bears - Central Square, Cambridge on Wednesday night. It's a bill that also include personal favorite Jesse Malin! If you are in the Boston area, check this one out. To quote Acute: "You Better Believe Me, Because the Trouble Will Follow You Home."

man, what's with this Wednesday. This band sounds great, but I've already got tickets for The Battles at The Paradise and Girl Talk is plying that night too. Big night. Too bad I can't be in three places at the same time. Thanks for the heads up in these guys.

Man, I forgot Battles was playing! But, you are right - you can only be one place at a time anyway. I never miss Malin when he comes. Acute is an added bonus. Be sure to drop me a line and tell me about the show! Mirrored is a great record.
