955-5664 or www.32Bleu.com It's a good week for music here in C. Springs, and for those who feel, perhaps, that Rufus Wainwright and George Jones just ain't be rockin' it, you'll be pleased to know there's something for everyone. California pop-rockers The Jealous Sound will be passing through on Tuesday and will be joined by local emo boys Laymen Terms and indie acousti-quiet lullabists Dolorean from Portland, who will warm the stage in the early evening.
Littered with catchy hooks and plaintive, emo-ish vocals, TJS is a band of straightforward, unadorned pop rock, untouched by retro trends. After several long bouts with major label balks and contractual hang-ups, they recently released their first full-length CD, Kill Them With Kindness, and are now making their way to the land where bands plan to land.
