Saturday night: The Goodnight Loving

Some weeks you run out of room and/or time before you can give a heads-up in the newspaper about a show that's worth checking out. In the case of The Goodnight Loving, it's happened a few times -- I've been intending to get something written up on this band, but each time they've been through, for one reason or another, I haven't been able to.

They hail from the same garage rock scene that's represented by acts like Pink Reason, but Goodnight Loving represent a more polished, pop-oriented and hi-fi brand of rock. The band's music has country-rock tinges (replete with occasional slide guitar) but is nestled comfortably within the idiom of power-pop (and reps some electric organ here and there as well).

They're showing up Saturday night at Howler's in Bloomfield; Burndowns and Dark Lingo open.
