The Quiet Life / Ballroom Thieves

  • The Quiet Life

December 10. The last time we caught Portland, Oregon's the Quiet Life at BSP Lounge, which they revisit for this date, the band was in full-on Crazy Horse mode—heavy, meaty riffs and long, wailing solos were the order of the day. The group's 2011 album, Big Green (named for their vegetable oil-burning touring van) took the bearded-and-flannelled foursome in a softer acoustic direction, perhaps living up to their name a bit more. Their new effort, Wild Pack, however, is being praised for its balance of both feels. Boston's Ballroom Thieves also plough the new-Americana field, utilizing guitar, cello, and percussion. (The Blow and Wave Sleep Wave waft in December 2; Caroline Rose croons December 11.) 8pm. $7. Kingston.
