With so much in the young music scene all about being fashionable, it's rare to find a band that doesn't care if they're listening to the "right" music or if they're wearing gender-appropriate clothing. Not that Ten After Eight try to be different; they just don't really care about being trendy. The Springs quintet has been grouping and regrouping over the past four years, and now is releasing For Lack of Better Words, an album of original alternative rock melodies and pronounced vocals -- all catchy enough for radio playlists. Check out the release party for a heartfelt blast from the, uh, '90s.
