Ha Ha Tonka, Rocky Votolato 

When: Tue., Oct. 26, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $9-11

Rocky Votolato's songs often send happily mixed messages. The former frontman of the driving emo band Waxwing, Votolato still sings in an earnest pine, his soft voice often coiling for a sort of Dashboard Confessional toughness. Coupled with his simple acoustic guitar patterns, his reputation as a weepy sort is easy to understand. And though Votolato sings of the hard lessons of his emotional history, his words are testaments to resilience and perseverance. Though his albums have grown a tad listless since he signed to Barsuk for 2006's Makers, the unease in his voice still somehow affords an abiding calm. With Ha Ha Tonka. —Grayson Currin
