Gospel Music 

When: Thu., Dec. 15, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

Sorry to anyone expecting soulful hymns, but this band name is ironic. Gospel Music is Owen Holmes, bassist of Black Kids, delivering pop tunes about girls and binge drinking. This project doesn't do much to distinguish itself from the pack of harmless lowish-fi fun-rock roving around. "All the girl had to say was 'I'm Puerto Rican'/ and I shared too much with her," Holmes sings on his LP, How to Get to Heaven from Jacksonville, FL, before the lyrics begin to bottom out completely. "Any port in the storm, and I'm a port authority," he sings. Too bad tonight's Gospel Music is a proper noun. —Corbie Hill
