Brown Bird, Last Good Tooth 

When: Fri., May 3, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

Rhode Island's Brown Bird typically gets reduced as a co-ed folk duo, but that's a dreadfully limited representation of what they actually do. Making music more suited for the hookah bar than the coffee shop, MorganEve Swain and David Lamb twist tendrils of Middle Eastern melodies, heavy metal brood and cabaret esprit across songs that provide ample space for their wonderfully disjointed harmonies and off-kilter cadences. Violin, upright bass and guitar join the insistent trot of foot percussion, creating a quartet better suited for the economy. The two often sing about politics and socioeconomics (their latest, the intriguing Fits of Reason, includes a cut called "Hitchens"), but again, the material sounds too personal and personable to fit the stereotypes. With Last Good Tooth. —Grayson Currin
