Crystal Bright & the Silver Hands, Monologue Bombs 

When: Thu., July 12, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands toe a fascinating line, making for either an uncommonly dignified circus sideshow or a melodramatic, gorgeous Eastern European street performance. Think Tori Amos with Tom Waits' sense of humor, or maybe a Tim Burton film with the steampunk quotient maxed. Their recent Muses and Bones is immersive and beguiling, alternating between reckless klezmer and enormous gothic ballads. Opener The Monologue Bombs are pop-country's practical cousin, with all its soft-focus idealism replaced with the awkward imperfections of reality. The free show starts at 10 p.m. —Corbie Hill
