The Get Togethers w/Abigail Blythe & One Big Owl 

When: Thu., Aug. 2, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5
There are so many acts pursuing music careers through formal Music Row-ish channels, so many polished pitches and press kits going around, that it’s possible for anybody who doesn’t have a reason to set foot on a college campus to momentarily forget that the early twenty-something crowd yields its own wealth of DIY performers, and what a good and healthy thing that is. What’s interesting about this particular lineup is that it’s thoroughly coed. There are two couples in The Get Togethers; One Big Owl looks to be an all-guy quintet at the moment, though there’s a female harmony singer on their One Big Owl(bum); and Abigail Blythe is the frontwoman of her own outfit, featuring members of The Joy of Painting and The Constables. Blythe’s a ukulele-playing newbie songwriter with opera-singing parents, and from the sound of the Hungry Heart EP she released this spring, she’s aiming for whimsical, jazzy territory decidedly left of Adele. The Get Togethers work a spikier indie-rock vein, occasionally with a hint of a polyrhythmic pulse beneath, and their new LP Home as in Houston is due out in a month or two.
