Music preview: The Hush Sound & Hockey a perfect fit for A&R on a summer night

From the May 30, 2013 edition

Neither Hockey nor The Hush Sound is particularly original or even exceptional, but they both play a strand of polished, lightweight, danceable pop-rock that seems genetically engineered for A&R Music Bar on a pleasant summer night when the garage door opens to the patio.

Thus, Wednesday’s gig has the potential to be, if not one of the best concerts you see this year, at least one of your loveliest nights of the season.

River City Extension, Genevieve (from Company of Thieves) and Lucas Carpenter are on the bill too, so even though it starts early, it will probably run late too.
