Fools for Rowan & more 

When: Fri., Nov. 5, 8 p.m. 2010
Their ice-cold guitar hooks and chilly harmonies add up to something like hard rock, but Fools for Rowan live and die with the grandeur of Erin Mullins' big, melodramatic voice. The Nashville group have come up with a catchy and far-from-unintelligent variation on the overstated heroics pioneered by bands such as Heart and Evanescence. Whether or not you're convinced by the gloriously depressing flow of "Dead" and other tracks from last year's full-length release Twisted. Tied Up. Tangled. depends on your patience for, well, melodramatic rock with power-ballad tendencies delivered by a singer who never hesitates to pull out all the stops. Mullins is good — she hits the notes and then some, while "No" and "Living Dangerously" are well-paced numbers that illustrate commercial hard rock's tendency to make its points through form, not content. Love hurts, but most of us knew that already.
