Damnwells, Harper Blynn, Howard Jennings 

When: Tue., March 29, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $10

The Brooklyn-based baby of songwriter and frontman Alex Dezen, The Damnwells are a rotating collection of friends who back Dezen's shimmering, starry-eyed pop-rock touched with a slight twang. Dezen's hardly breaking new ground, but he reliably buries big chorus melodies in listeners' heads. Harper Blynn is from the same borough—both literally and figuratively—as The Damnwells, but the opening quartet is more likely to leave an impression. The band beats out its neighbors in the hooks-per-minute race while packing its quirky indie rock with alluring harmonies. Opener Howard Jennings writes loping, radio-ready ballads that may fool early attendees into thinking the headliners hit the stage two hours ahead of schedule. —Spencer Griffith
